WW1 Battlefields Tour

On Sunday 4th February, Miss Wilkins, Adam and Saavun set off on a WW1 Battlefields tour with a lot of other schools in Hillingdon. The purpose of the tour was to engage students with the centenary of the First World War by visiting a number of different sites in Belgium and France. 

It was a packed four days, and we were able to reflect on a number of key questions such as ‘Was the battle of the Somme really a disaster for the British Army?’ and ‘How did WW1 affect ordinary people?’. We even participated in making a clay soldier for Belgium’s upcoming 2018 remembrance land art installation CWXRM. Over the few days we were there we visited a number of battlefield sites, cemeteries and museums centred around the first world war and hope to pass what we have learnt on to many of our fellow pupils in our Legacy 110 project this coming Autumn.
