This week, we have been doing some work about WW1 and why we should remember all the brave soldiers who have fought in wars over the past 100 years. We created a poppy wreath and learnt about a soldier who attended our school. We also made and painted some clay poppies.
We worked in groups to create posters to show all the things we have learnt about the plague. We then went down to Year 1 and shared our learning with them as they are learning about a similar topic - The Great Fire of London!
We used drama activities to explore the events of Eyam. We discussed how we felt about being asked to stay in the village, even if it meant we would probably catch the plague! We also discovered the gruesome meaning behind the 'ring o ring o roses' song!
This afternoon, we worked in groups to advertise for some Plague Cures. They ranged from rubbing onion and figs on your buboes to drinking urine!
