Year 6 visit Aintree Davenhill Primary School to learn about WW1

10th November 2017

POn Thursday the 9th of November, Class 13 & 14  went to Aintree Davenhill Primary School. We learnt about WW1 and the impact that it has on people today when they remember people who have fought to protect our country. We learnt about how the women didn’t go to war; they made the first aid kits for the medics and for people who were seriously injured and the bomb shells/ammunition. Also, did you know that 13 year olds even fought in the war?

Ella said, “My favourite part of the afternoon was when we wrote the telegram (pretending that we were soldiers writing to our parents) and learning about the soldiers and how they fought for our country.” Freddie stated, “My favourite part was when I held the weapons and learnt how they were actually used during the war.”

One of the main things that we learnt from the session was that everyone thought that the war would end by Christmas 1914 but it didn’t. Instead it ended on the 11th November 1918. We all really enjoyed every activity that we went to as we learnt so many new facts about WW1.
