Enquiry title: How were the people of Britain effected 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.'
We have been learning new sketching skills to improve our art. We then put our learning into practise when we sketched real images of WW1 soldiers. We were reallly pleased with our progress and end results!
In order to prepare us for a challenge of creating a news report on an aspect of WW1, we needed to remind ourselves and learn how to use iMovie effectively. We took to the school grounds to explore and create our own advertisements for St Stephen's Juniors sports and 'How we use our Secret Garden'.
For our WOW, Mr Evans (otherwise known as Bombardier Evans) took on the role of a WW1 Officer and we all had to get into role as soldiers and follow his very strict orders. We learned how to march properly and understood how important it was to follow him exactly. In addition, we learned all about typical classrooms in the early 20th century and some of the countries which were involved in the First World War. We enjoyed digging trenches in the rain and even had a go at some very tricky needlework! We can't wait to find out more!
