Hawks Class have thoroughly enjoyed our World War theme and have worked hard to create many outstanding pieces of writing. 

Christmas Truce 

The children examined a range of original sources including photographs, diary entries, letters home and newspaper reports to discover what really happened on the Western Front during the Christmas Truce of 1914. The children applied their understanding to write creative newspaper reports which, as well as report upon the events of Christmas 1914, also reflect upon how, when killing and warfare were the daily occupation of hundreds of thousands of men, those most entrenched in the worst of circumstances decided to take a stand for humanity.

World War 2 in the Forest of Dean

The children were immersed in the impact of World War 2 on the Forest of Dean by Mr Deeks from the local History Society and Andy Seed, author of The Story of the Forest.  The children were inspired to write their own non-fiction texts.  The children then worked in groups to re-create part of their report for the these final published pieces which we have sent to Andy Seed.
