As part of our new class text, War Horse, the children have been carrying out research about World War 1. Children were able to discuss and imagine themselves as a soldier and the type of living condition they would be exposed to in the trenches. The class then went on to look at how animals, in particular horses, were used to support the war effort.
We discussed how this year holds additional significance as in marks the 100th anniversary of World War 1 ending.
