As part of our SMSC and British Values, we focused on World War One and the Battle of the Somme in particular for our Remembrance Day commemorations this year. A school assembly followed by work in tutor time and in English lessons, allowed the students to focus on the suffering endured by the soldiers and the sheer loss of life. In Flanders Field was the main poem focused on and students created work from this piece.
Students from both KS2 and KS3 attended a 3 day training programme with Challenger Troop where they were able to carry out many different outdoor activities as well as sleeping in tents for two nights.
Students who attended stated they thoroughly enjoyed the course and learned a great deal about thermselves!!
