WORLD WAR 1 PROJECT

This year saw the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War 1 and 5th and 6th class recently studied the events leading up to and including that 4 year period from 1914 to 1918 and indeed aftewards also. The children chose topics which were of interest to them to study using the Sainsburys Christmas ad as the backdrop while also watching "War Horse" and studying primary and secondary sources of information which included posters, photographs copies of soldiers letters and ration books. The results can be seen below. We used Animoto to compile and organise our digital projects. All images used are from royalty free websites. Some of the videos can take a bit of time to load so please be patient. We promise they will be worth the wait!!! The can also be seen together with other school projects and videos on our schools Youtube channel here
