History focus – Armistice day 2017


Armistice day (November 2017)

All classes took part in class assemblies and lessons to learn about remembrance, the history of the poppy appeal and why we wear them. Pupils in Early Years made lovely hand-print and tissue-paper poppies. In KS1 pupils had the opportunity to look at artefacts from someone who had served in World War II, write about what they had learned and reflect on why we wear a poppy. KS2 pupils wrote prayers and fact-files as well as a variety of poetry including acrostic poems, haikus and kennings.
