Year 6 visit to the Imperial War Museum

We had an amazing visit to the IWM today as part of our World War Two topic. We found out lots more facts about the war- how it broke out and what life was really like for people during that time. 

Outside, we saw the glorious poppies display which inspired us to make our own poppy display back in school to remember 100 year since the end of the First World War. The Big Picture Show was also fascinating as the Manchester poet Tony Walsh has recorded a very special poem to mark the Centenary. It was very thought provoking and many of the children and staff were moved by his powerful words... 

"Imagine all those faces from the history books, the news; imagine for one moment that you’re standing in their shoes. Imagine having hopes and dreams, then everything goes wrong; and everything you want to be – reduced to just – be strong.
So imagine if we stop and look the future in the face. Do we want to win at war enough to lose the human race?"
