 See below for some of the work we produced for our Remembrance Walk

 

We investigated - Why were animals important in World War One?

 

We found out lots of interesting facts and concluded that without animals the war would have been very different. There would have been transport and communication problems that would have seriously damaged our country's ability to fight. Other roles (like spying and sniffing out poison gas) were perhaps less important but still useful. They were also important for morale. It is hard to measure this. At a time when those fighting were often scared and lonely, animals provided comfort and hope. 

Some of us asked if we would have won the war without the use of animals. That would depend upon if the enemy was still using animals or not.

 

            Some pupils created these emotive speeches, urging people to                   remember the animals of war and why they were important - 

 We also investigated The Korean War - why has it been overlooked compared to other wars?

Pupils explored this and came up with lots of reasons. 

We watched an animated short film about a boy seeing the from a child's perspective.

This inspired the poems below.
