Year 6 found their topic on World War 1 last term fascinating and it inspired lots of great writing and art work. As the topic comes to an end what better way to consolidate all their learning by immersing the children in genuine historical artefacts from the period? The children were fortunate to spend a day with Jason King and his WW1 collection – http://www.worldwarartefacts.co.uk/. Jason arrived at school an hour early to begin to set out the most amazing collection and he led a fabulous day where the children were fully engaged in using the collection to find out more and more about the period they have been studying.
It was like having a museum in school – but a museum where the children could touch everything!
