This term our topic will be based on remembering the lives of soldiers that took part in WW1.
As historians we will:
- Look at significant events, people and places in our own locality
The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month marks the signing of the Armistice, on 11th November 1918, to signal the end of World War One. At 11am on 11th November 1918 the guns fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. Remembrance Day is on 11th November. It is a special day set aside to remember all those men and women who were killed during the two World Wars and during more recent wars and conflicts. Remembrance Sunday is held on the second Sunday in November, which is usually the Sunday nearest to 11th November.
We will find out as much as we can about some of the local people who lost their lives during the world wars. We will examine our local war memorials and find out the names of soldiers who died.
We will find out about Remembrance Sunday and why people wear poppies at this time of year.
As artists we will:
- Use experiences and ideas as the inspiration for artwork
- Share ideas using drawing, painting, sculpture and collage
- Learn about the work of significant artists
We will create images of poppies, taking inspiration from the Tower of London poppies that were displayed for a short time in 2014. We will also create sculptures of poppies using twisted paper and tissue paper. We will combine them to make a display collage of a field of poppies.
As writers we will:
- Write labels
- Write stories
- Write and recite poetry
- Present information
As geographers we will:
- Use world maps atlases and globes
- We will locate the battlefields of World War I and find out which continent they were in.
