World War 1 Centenary

Home » News » World War 1 Centenary

This year is the centenary of World War 1. Even though Remembrance Day marks the end of the war, it acts as a pertinent time to commemorate the centenary.

As part of Wybunbury's commemorations, we will be asking children to find out about the war during school and time when at home; each class will be learning about a particular element of the war and we will be sharing our learning during a special whole school assembly on November 11th.

Also on the day, we will be asking children to help the school create a piece of living art inspired by Nele Azevedo's ice soldiers. Each child will be given a red balloon which they will be asked to fill with water and then freeze. We would like the children to bring their balloon to school in order to create a large poppy on the school field. Just as Nele Azevedo's ice soldiers melted away, our balloons will melt away over the day in remembrance of those who gave their life.

What else can you do at home?
1. Over half term, we are asking children to find out about any links that their family has to World War 1. The aim is that the children will share their stories with their class on November 11th. If you have any artefacts, please feel free to bring them in too.
2. Come dressed up in clothes from 1914 on November 11th. Children can come as members of the British Army, nurses or simple people who stayed at home. To give the children a fully immersive experience, we would like these costumes to as close to the real thing as possible (this means no modern army or nurse outfits). Please see the attached costume sheet for ideas. However, please note this is not a requirement, children only have to come dressed up if they would like to.
