Year 6 Experience Day

World War I Experience Day

Year 6 fully immersed themselves into character as they dressed up in World War I attire.

They began the morning by completing some 'blackout poetry' based on the famous poem by John McCrae - 'In Flanders Fields'. 

We attended Year 5F's class worship based on Remembrance and participated in the 1 minute silence as a school community.

After that, we learned all about Propaganda used to recruit soldiers - Lord Kitchener launched a poster campaign on a huge scale, to persuade men to volunteer to fight.

After lunch, we researched what it was like in White City and Shepherds Bush during World War I.

We had a very informative Experience Day.
