WW1 and WW2 visitors
Upper Key Stage 2 were joined today by two experts, who came in to discuss with the classes the harsh realities of war on the front line. Y6, through support from their 'Editor in Chief' John, were journalists on the front line at the Somme, exploring how a quiet region of France changed over the course of a day to become the sight of one of the most tragic battles in history. Through looking at a range of war memorabilia and photographs, Colin Hyde led Y5 on a exploration through life in Leicester during WW1. Both year groups got so much out of the day, and we would like to thank both Colin and John for their time and expertise.
