As you know Year 6 have been studying the topic ‘What the 20th Century has done for us’ and part of that has involved looking at the effects of both World Wars on people, especially children.
Mrs Croft was over-whelmed when Phoebe brought in the most amazing personal treasures that belong to her family. Her Great Granddad took part in the war and we were able to see a wonderful collection of photographs, medals and love letters that he sent to his sweetheart. (Mrs Croft said it caused more than one teacher to shed a tear).
It enabled the children to see ‘real’ artefacts and caused quite a stir in the classroom. On behalf of Year 6 (especially me) we would like to say a huge thank you for making our topic ‘come alive’ and for sharing such beautiful treasures with us.
Take a look at some of the photos we took.
