每年, 2014 - 2018, 这是为停战日做准备的一部分, students take part in the ‘WW1 curriculum experience’ where they receive a lesson on WW1 in different subject areas.
今年, 与去年相似, faculties around school offered a wide ranging and comprehensive set of lessons and activities.
Y8 students read and performed the poignant words of Owen’s ‘Dulce Et Decorum Est’ and took part in a re-enactment. One team performed to the rest of their year group so that students could reflect on the anguish, 在第一次世界大战中服役的年轻人所付出的痛苦和牺牲.
在其他地方, 学生们通过学习战争诗歌来了解如何创造同理心和同情心, 观察个体的声音, 探索爱国主义和士兵们所面临的悲惨恐怖. 学生在课堂上写一篇文章描述战壕. 本单元将以在学校礼堂举行的“背诵诗歌”比赛结束.
想象一下，你正在前线作战，想念家和亲人. 这正是ag亚游手机版的九年级学生用法语、乌尔都语和阿拉伯语所做的. They are playing the role of soldiers in trenches penning notes and letters to family and friends in their Languages lessons. 在法语课上, students also study a text called ‘la vie dans les tranchee’ (life in the trenches).
俗话说得好, “军队匍匐前进”, 第一次世界大战的一个重要部分是确保没有人在没有食物的情况下. 在法国, Urdu and Arabic lessons students create survival and ration packs and present these to the class in the target language. An exhibition of these survival and ration packs is displayed in the library for students, 工作人员和客人一起探索.

Pupils debate what a real hero is and explore the work of an individual/group that are unsung heroes, 过去或现在. This led up to students designing a campaign to get a WW1 hero of their choice recognised.
研究战争的概念:它是正确的? 这是错的吗? This debate preoccupied students in RS lessons whilst the themes of conscientious objectors and pacifism is explored in Y8.
在去年, pupils tackle and debate big questions around the war for instance: who made the biggest difference/sacrifice? 议会在战争爆发时扮演了什么角色?
