The World War One topic is progressing apace in the Kensuke base and the quality of the writing is off the chart. Tasked with creating a character from scratch, each Y6 will tell of a personal journey into hell and back, a journey that millions of men took in reality a little over a century ago.
Keep checking back as more examples of the fine work being completed in class is added here.
The set up for the next stage of the World War One journey sees each character trapped in a hellish trench on the Western Front having discovered they were sold a lie about the reality of the conflict.
We are building towards writing a letter home to a loved one, something millions of young men did, and the first stage involved turning the classroom into a trench and collecting ideas about the almost unimaginable conditions that were experienced by those unlucky enough to find themselves in the heart of darkness.
The annual Crucial Crew trip has taken place and a great day of learning was had by all the Kensukes. Information was taken onboard, scenarios were played out and all against a backdrop of exemplary behaviour.
Well played indeed Y6s!
