World War I Topic

In topic we have been learning about World War I and what it was like to be a soldier in the trenches.  We have started to create our own World War I posters.  We retrieved our information about the Great War from books and the internet.  We worked collaboratively to create our posters.  We really enjoyed this activity.

Year 5 were very lucky to be able to handle genuine artefacts from World War I.  Ashleigh's Great, Great Grandad, Peter Parker, fought in the Great War and after morning duties decorated bomb shells.  Asheligh shared with us her Great, Great Grandad's tobacco tin issued to all soldiers in 1914 by Princess Mary.
