... To commemorate the centenary of World War 1, Year 6 have spent the Autumn term studying different aspects of the war and how it affected the lives of individuals at home and abroad. The infamous battles in Ypres, life in the trenches and the role of munitions workers in Derby were amongst some of the areas studied to investigate and interpret the past. The Great War also became the stimulus for Literacy and the pupils used a range of art work as inspiration for poems on the subject. Mrs Collins' class had the opportunity to work with The Fifth Word theatre group (see the link dated 1st October) to research, design and curate an exhibition on WW1 which will be exhibited at Sudbury Hall. The topic culminated in a trip to The National Memorial Arboretum, which was enjoyed by one and all! Click here to download a montage of images from the trip!

6CS have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in an exciting World War 1 project . They have been working hard, with Fifth Word Theatre Company, to produce an exhibition of archives and artefacts for the National Trust. The exhibition will be displayed at Sudbury Hall and then at Kedleston Hall. It has been an incredibly busy week with a trip to Sudbury Hall, where the children were trained to understand how to put together an exhibition and the importance of display techniques to interest their audience. As the week progressed, the class sorted through and gained a deeper understanding of events from World War 1 that were significant to Derby and the surrounding areas. We also visited The Derbyshire Record Office in Matlock and were able to look at and research actual archives from World War 1. As part of the project, a documentary film is being made so we had our very own camera man for the week!
