As a school, we are creating a display for the Kippax Armistice Project. Children may wish to contribute to this project by doing any one of the following (or they can come up with an idea of their own):

Display Project Ideas:

  • Research what life was like for soldiers when they came home
  • Write a poem about returning home from war
  • Using the list of names provided by your class teacher, find out if you are related to any of the men who fought in WW1 and write a paragraph about your connection.
  • Create a poster or art piece that represents soldiers coming home from war
  • Write a biography about someone who served in the war.
  • Interview someone who has connections with someone who served.
  • Write a story about coming home from WW1.

This week's spelling homework (wb 8.10.18)  activity is to investigate and find 5 more pairs of homophones.
