WW1

Year 6 WW1 class assembly

On Thursday, both 6M and 6W showed off their knowledge of WW1 by performing in a class assembly for children, teachers and families.

They told the story of how the Great War began, which countries were involved, what life was like for the soldiers in the trenches and how we remember the war today. This was all shown by acting, singing and poetry reading.

We hope everybody enjoyed watching!

6M – remembering the soldiers

On Friday 9th November, we visited Blackley Forest to participate in a short ceremony to remember the soldiers who have fought for us.

Some of the children in 6M had written some powerful poems, which they wanted to share with all those who joined us on this special morning.

Their writing highlighted the sacrifices the soldiers made, the struggles they faced and how grateful we are for everything they did for us.

Their poems will be kept and displayed for the next 12 months in a memory book, which will be found at our memorial bench in Blackley Forest.

6M WW1 memorial clay modelling

6M have been exploring WW1 memorials during topic lessons. They have studied and evaluated the qualities that an effective memorial has.

Using what they have learned, they have gone on to design what they think would be a fantastic memorial. They have explored different materials and methods, and decided that clay would be the most effective material to work with.

They thoroughly enjoyed creating and modelling their clay memorials.
