Our World War 1 Week

We have been busy this week learning all about WW1.

At the beginning of the week, we each made our own solider and a vehicle for the soldier to travel in.

We imagined what it would have been like to be a solider in WW1: we cooked mud pies and soup in the soldiers’ mess, we wrote letters to our loved ones back home, and we made shelter and dens to keep ourselves safe.

We also imagined what it would have been like in Andover during WW1 and we carried out activities that the people of Andover would have been involved in: we planted seeds to grow our own vegetables, we used rations to buy fruit and vegetables from the grocery shop, and we made food parcels and wrote letters to send to the soldiers.

At the end of the week we made poppies for our soldiers and also to remember the brave soldiers who fought for us in WW1.
