In the spring of 1915, shortly after losing a friend in Ypres, a Canadian doctor, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was inspired by the sight of poppies growing in battle-scarred fields to write a now famous poem called 'In Flanders Fields'. We read the poem and recited this individually and in groups to one another.
This half term we are going to be examining a range of Survival stories.
To introduce the topic we went on a hunt for survival essentials hidden around the school grounds. It was a lot of fun exploring and looking in a variety of places. Once we had collected all the items we discussed the possible uses and ranked them in order of necessity and importance. We located items such as a net, a torch, a compass and many many more. It really made of think about the difficulties we would would face without the luxuries of home!
