World War 1 Armistice Centenary Commemoration

In November 2018 we spent a week thinking about and commemorating the end of World War One - "The Great War".  Each class took part in activities to help us to understand more about WW1 and the importance of remembrance events.  Years 4 to 6 took part in a trenches experience day at Hill End and all classes participated in sessions using virtual reality headsets and software, which enabled us to make virtual journeys around the trenches and the dug-outs.  Our older pupils looked at poetry written by some famous war poets, whilst younger pupils focused on life at home 100 years ago, comparing it with our lives today.  All classes produced some fabulous art work using commemorative poppies as their inspiration and we planted bulbs in our school garden, which we look forward to seeing bloom in the spring.  Our special week ended with a centenary celebration meal, including bacon "clangers" and seasonal vegetables, which we ate "street-party style" complete with bunting and period music.  Here are some photographs from our week.
