This week we have been learning about the importance of remembrance day, which is extra special this year as it is 100 years since the end of WW1.
We will keep adding our learning to this gallery, but take a look at what we have done so far!
We have made bunting for Onchan School library.
We explored what life was like during WW1 for soldiers in the trenches, for woman and for children. As a result we baked trench cake together and made gas masks using our creative skills.
We applied our number knowledge to decide on clothes we could buy using ration coupons that totalled 20, and we created 'peace poppies'.
We have also made poppy paintings within our continuous provision.
Finally we have role played being in the trenches by dressing up and using our senses to find out what it must have felt like for the soldiers. We then used this experience to write a letter home to our families about life as a soldier, including the special Christmas Day truce we might have experienced as a soldier.
