Year 7 took part in a special WW1 day on Friday 11th July to commemorate the centenary of the start of the war this year. It was an action packed day, organised by the History department, in partnership with other subjects from across the school, including Maths, French, DT, English and Geography.
Students got stuck into lessons across the school and produced some fantastic work – they cracked codes and wrote their own secret messages, wrote some very emotional letters in French, found out about the different cultures and nationalities you would find in the British trenches, made their own personalised dog tags and fighter planes and created some fantastic imagery in the poems they wrote about life on the Western Front during WW1. The whole day was enjoyed enormously by both staff and students.
A highlight of the day was the drama piece by year 7 History Club who wrote, directed and performed their own play about life in the trenches, which had the audience in hysterics.
