This term, Year 5 and Year 6’s topic is……
World War I!
The Year 6 pupils have been writing as if they were soldiers from the World War I.
We have talked about how it is in the trenches, how the latrines (toilets) would always block and overflow. How all the water gives the soldiers trench foot and spreads diseases. We also talked about No Man’s land (the centre of the battlefield) that would be surrounded by barbed wire. They had to sleep during the day and fight and battle during the afternoon to the evening. The soldiers very rarely got to send letters to their families, play card games.
If you know a fun fact about The World War I, comment them!
