This week we have been thinking a lot about World War One because yesterday (11th November) was Remembrance Day.
On Monday, we started the week by learning about why people wear poppies and celebrate Remembrance Day.
Can you remember why poppies are worn?
As a class, we created an acrostic poem and worked really hard to write this in our best handwriting.
On Tuesday, we learned a little but more about World War One. We thought more specifically about animals and their role in the war.
Can you remember the three main animals that were involved in the war?
We produced some beautiful pictures to show these animals.
On Wednesday at 11.00am we all went out into the playground and held a two minute silences to think about all of the people who have been hurt or killed during wars.
In the afternoon we had a lovely treat. Round Midnight Theatre Company visited school and Phil and Emmie played some games with us to help us to learn more about animals during the war.
Can you remember why horses were used during the war?
What jobs did the dogs do?
Why did they need to chase the rats?
Can you remember why pigeons carried messages?
We are going to end the week by consolidating all of our learning so far and creating some lovely writing about war animals.
