We have been learning about the men who did not come back from WW1 and are remembered on our memorial. We have found some of their names in our school records, as well as stories about how the school helped in the war. The children have written letters to the soldiers who did not return and have drawn some very good charcoal pictures of what they may have looked like.
Primary 7 asked Tim about the effects of war on soldiers, and what it must have been like during WW1. He showed us his medals from Afghanistan and his grandfather’s medals from WW1. The children were also interested in the different weapons and technology that soldiers now used, and how much they have advanced since 1914.
