Throughout the week, the children learnt about the Great War through discussion, finding out information about family members who fought in the World Wars, reading poetry and creating our own cinquains which tell the story of War.
In PSHE we learnt about the different feelings we experience through loss or bereavement. We used jagged, smooth and precious stones to represent our feelings and memories and created memory stones about someone who is special to us.
To commemorate the centenary of the First World War and in culmination of all our work, we created a Remembrance display which we invited the parents to view.
“People who fought in the war can die twice. Once in the war and a second time if we forget them. That’s why we need to remember them.”
The children thoroughly enjoyed their topic launch day where they created Anglo-Saxon coins, used gold paint to create illuminated letters of their first name initial, learnt how to spell their name using ancient runes and tasted some typical fruit and vegetables from the period.
After all their hard work, they were rewarded by ending the day sampling the vegetable soup they had made during the day along with some homemade bread courtesy of Mr Taylor.
Cai N: “This was delicious.”
“Is there any more?” piped up numerous voices.
“Can I have some more bread please?”
