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