On Monday 26th February, I have arranged for Louise Wright from Experience Barnsley to come into school for a ‘WW1 Session’. Throughout the morning the children will discover the lives and stories of local people involved in WW1 using archival documents, handling objects and period costume. Each pupil will be given a soldier’s book to complete throughout the session. The children will have a hands on experience with artefacts and crafts, including making a Princess Mary tin. The children will also learn about the life of a soldier through role-play. Louise will teach the children how to march like a soldier, respond to commands and carry out first aid. The session will end with a reflective creative writing activity where pupils will transport themselves back in time to write a postcard to a soldier or nurse. To ensure we make the most of the morning and the children can fully engage in the experience, we invite all the children in Class 5 to come to school for the day dressed up ready for war. The children have the opportunity to come dressed as a soldier, a nurse, a child or any costume fitting into a WW1 theme.
Secondly on Tuesday 27th February, I have arranged for Team LG to work with Mr Fidment. Over the past few week the children have been extremely inquisitive about the lives of young soldiers during WW1. We have started listening to Michael Morpurgo’s ‘Private Peaceful’ which has sparked the interest of the children to learn more about the life of child soldiers. To link with our PE curriculum, we are going to be running a young soldiers training camp on the afternoon of the 27th February. This will take place in the school’s nature reserve. Please could you ensure that your child brings an appropriate set of clothes and shoes to participate in this activity. Due to the current weather conditions, please be aware that the children’s clothing may get muddy and therefore it would be appropriate to send clothes/shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty.
