The Military Hospital is HERE!

We have converted our ICT Suite back to the Hospital ward it was 100 years ago, during WWI. Year 5 and 6 have been practising their role play as nurses and soldiers ready to show the public on Saturday!

 

War Horse

Year 6 have been reading the story WarHorse for our WW1 topic. We really loved reading it- as it was from the horse’s perspective. The best part is when: Joey meets Captain J Nicholls and is sent off to war, despite missing Albert and Zoey. We are really excited to watch the DVD of WarHorse

We have taken a photo of the book:

ALBANY WW1 NEWSPAPER REPORTS

We wrote about the Christmas truce of 1914 for both sides, we had pictures quotes & the five W’s and student Marlene wrote the report in German. We found out the most amazing part of the Christmas truce were: The fact that both sides stopped fighting after five months of blood baths!

This work was by Student Kanaan! The writer of this piece!

WW1 Poetry

In Year 6 we have been learning how to write haiku and acrostic poems using our knowledge and understanding of WWI.  We have also learnt about a Welsh Poet called Hedd Wyn, he was awarded the bard’s chair at the 1917 National Eisteddfod.  Unfortunately he died before he found out and his bardic chair was covered in black.  Our poems will be on display during the exhibition!

Logos

We designed logos for the Albany Military Hospital to put on our website. We made sure that we used lots of different war themes like poppies, the red cross and military colours.

The winning design will be at the top of the website soon!
