Our idea:

111024 - WG_Funded_land_mono jpg - LogoPupils will gain knowledge about aspects of life during WW1 for local families through visits to local museums and interviews with local people with families who recall what they were told about the War. Pupils will build links with the local community by inviting visitors in to an assembly to share the work from the project and by writing an article for the local paper. Video and photo footage of activities and visits will be displayed in school and on our web site.
