Term 2

Remembrance Poppies

This week, Year 6 remembered the soldiers that gave their lives during World War one. We created a memorial garden with our clay poppies. Each class created a wreath and we laid it at the Dover War Memorial.

Our Learning Lift Off

We have started our topic on Remembrance and considered why we celebrate Remembrance Day on the same day every year.  As part of our learning lift off, we created clay poppies by carefully using rolling techniques and delicately moulding the poppy petals into the shapes we wanted. Endeavour Class made a great effort to take their time and use the pottery techniques we have learnt in previous years.

Hawthorne Trenches

On Tuesday, Year 6 visited the Hawthorne Trenches to reflect on how the soldiers lived and fought during World War I. We found out many incredible facts which we are excited to include in our topic this term. The trenches were incredibly realistic and our guide provided us with an amazing insight into the lives of soldiers at that time.
