First World War Day

As part of our cultural capital offering, Year 7 spent a day learning about the First World War.
Every lesson was tailored to show pupils how much of an impact the First World War had on society. Every department showed how the war either influenced them or was influenced by them.
Students were confidently explaining artists pieces of work and how their work was influenced by them. Students in Geography were perplexed to see just how many countries were involved and the human cost that was paid during the war.
English looked at life in the trenches and the volume of letters that came back.
PE gave pupils a real insight of life in the army and craft looked at the poppy and its artistic influence.
Pupils truly gained value from this day.
