World War One centenary

During November 2018, all pupils took part in activities and learning to mark the centenary of World War 1. Each key phase focussed on a different aspect of World War 1. EYFS and Key Stage One created poppies out of arts and craft materials to commemorate the event. Lower Key Stage Two created their own information powerpoints which explained the special centenary celebration. Upper Key Stage Two focussed on the Christmas Truce.  The children watched a video clip which illustrated the event and then wrote letters in role as a soldier writing home to his family. They also created a dance based on being soldiers in No Mans Land.

This activity linked with our partner school in France. We emailed examples of our learning and they told us how they commemorated the centenary through a visit to an exhibition about life in the trenches and through reading poems at a Remembrance event.
