Term 1

Our enquiry: How were the people of Britain affected by the First World War?


This term, we are excited to be learning all about WW1. We will be exploring how it all began and who was involved as well as ways that the war affected every day life. We already have so many questions which we can't wait to get answered!

Alongside our enquiry, we will be reading Michael Morpurgo's wartime novel 'Private Peaceful.'

This week in Cherry class we have been very busy as usual! We started the week with our WOW. It was a fantastic experience and we learnt so much about the war from the very knowledgeable Mr. Evans. He bought in many original artefacts and replicas to show us and also took us outside to do some ‘drill’ – just like the soldiers would’ve done all those years ago. We then begun reading Private Peaceful and started some writing alongside this.


As well as that, we produced a presentation for each of the Saints our houses are named after. Using the research from the previous week we worked in teams to put these together with the aim of then presenting to the rest of the school in assembly. On Wednesday and Thursday we presented to the rest of the school. It was very nerve-wracking for some of us but we all did it and did a really good job!

Propaganda Posters


We have designed and created our own propaganda posters following on from looking at some examples from the war. We thought carefully about the messages we wanted to get across and how we could make the posters appear to speak directly to the reader. Some of them are shown below!



For our WOW, Bombardier Evans (a teacher from another school, otherwise known as Mr Evans) took on the role of a WW1 Officer and came in to tell us all about WW1 and show us some of his fantastic artefacts. During the session, we learned how to march properly and understood how important it was to follow him exactly. He said we were really good at it so we even tried to do a ‘wheel’ – marching around in a big circle!


In addition, he also talked us through the impressive uniform he was wearing and allowed us to pass round some of the objects to see what they were like! The real (but not dangerous!) bullets and the replica army biscuits were amongst the favourites!
