A group of Year 5 pupils from our local primary schools came into school yesterday to enjoy a creative writing workshop inspired by World War 1.
The session started with a sensory activity where pupils had the opportunity to experience typical foods in the trenches, the sounds they would have heard and what they might have seen.
Next, pupils found out about Wilfred Owen and Field Marshall Haig, two soldiers who played a significant role in WW1. They took on their personas to write a diary entry, reflecting on what life in the trenches would have been like.
The visit from Year 5 pupils was part of our ongoing transition program that makes moving to secondary school easier, thanks to regular visits to the Academy.
Watch this space for more visits coming up soon...
