This week we have been learning all about World War 1 as we remember those who lost their lives in battle.
 
We have looked at the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ and written our own poems inspired by it. Later in the week we wrote letters of thanks to the soldiers who fought so bravely.
 
We created silhouette pictures using mixed media, poppy collages, charcoal poppy pictures and used real World War 1 medals to create impressions from which we were able to make our own medals. We also met Alan Quine Secretary of Stoke Works and Hanbury Royal British Legion who showed us his fantastic collection of medals and badges and answered all of our questions in such an interesting and informative manner!
 
In PE we had a Born to Move session where we really pushed ourselves to improve our fitness! This session encompassed aerobics, circuits, karate and yoga!
