WWI Focus Week
WWI Focus Week
The children have had a very informative and creative week learning about the WWI. They all took part in a workshop where they learnt what life was like for a solider, made clay poppies and other art works, rope poems, prayers and learnt songs from the era too.
WWI 'Poetry, Poppies and Peace' Exhibition
The children will be holding a special Centenary Exhibition for Parents/Carers and the Public. The public are welcome to attend on Tuesday 13 November and parents and carers on Wednesday 14 November both times are 1.15-4pm.
Think of Me - Horsebridge Exhibition
Mrs Gilbert, staff and children have helped create some of the Sweetheart cushions that will be on display at the 'Think of Me' Exhibition at the Horsebridge Galleries. It is a community led project to mark the Centenary of The First World War by remembering soldiers associated with Whitstable, who lost their lives during the conflict.
'There but not there'
After a successful application we have been lucky enough to receive 6 'Tommy' silhouettes and have given one to each class. These silhouettes symbolise a local soldier who lost his life in WWI that each class have researched and found out more about him. The silhouettes will be on display at our exhibition on 13th and 14th November.
Thank you to the Gaskin family who sent in their Great-Grandad's medals from the WWI. They will be on display as part of our Centenary Exhibition.
