Some of the boys were lucky enough to get hands on with History this week, examining some very thought-provoking WW1 artefacts. Thank you to Miss Graham who brought in her grandfather’s WW1 army uniform, cavalry cape and other items which included medals and cap badges. These generated many questions as the boys tried on and handled the various items. The boys reflected on what it must have been like during times of conflict and thought about the sacrifices made others.
In 3F’s classroom the boys watched and listened to a variety of different sources to inspire them to produce a three minute scene detailing the life of soldiers in the trenches during the Frist World War.
For 2MR, Miss Graham told the boys all about her brother Herbert George Clinch who was a medic in WW1. The boys were fascinated by all the artefacts she brought and especially loved the embossing machine. How lucky they are to have such a hands on experience.
