On Saturday we were incredibly proud of our year 5 and 6 pupils as they opened up the school for their Albany Military Hospital exhibition. Since September they have been learning about the history of our school and the role it played as a Military Hospital during World War 1. The children have learnt about World War 1 and on Saturday provided tours of the school to members of the public as well as displaying their work in an exhibition.
We also had a hospital ward as it would have been 100 years ago, there were even 'real' injured soldiers. The children shared letters home from the trenches, poetry inspired by Hedd Wyn and graphs and statistics linked to World War 1. There were some computer games that our visitors enjoyed playing that had been created by our pupils using Scratch and their coding skills. As a school we were proud to see the the confidence and excellent communication skills shown by our pupils when interacting with members of the public. This is a great learning opportunity for our pupils and a lovely opportunity to invite the community in and share our learning.
