Our idea:

111024 - WG_Funded_land_mono jpg - Logo16 students from the Year 7 More Able and Talented Group, together with 150 students from the Community Primary Schools, will jointly produce an informative commemorative report by June 2015. The learners will research the lives of Welsh soldiers who served in WW1 using war letters, diaries and wills. They will work with a local historian and use resources from the local library, internet, historical society and community members.
