Remembrance Day: KS3 Collapsed day

“When you go Home, tell them of us and say, for your Tomorrow, we gave our Today”. This quote is a reminder of the sacrifices soldiers made during the First World War.

On Wednesday 11th November, students at BVIS were involved in a collapsed day, learning about different aspects of WW1. The previous two weeks had seen all students learn about the Poppy Appeal, with Year 8 taking the lead of raising money for charity and doing an exceptional job. The day consisted of four activities and students worked together in their Houses. They got to see how intense military fitness training is and what was especially pleasing was their ability to support each other and push each other on, even though students were becoming tired. There were also many successful ‘egg drops’, which suggests there may be an engineer or two for the future, as they built and designed their own parachutes. Alongside their engineering capabilities, students produced beautiful pieces of art after analysing the poem “Doomed Youth” by Wilfred Owen. Finally, students got to learn about what it was like to be a soldier in the trenches and try to make the correct decisions in order not to be killed.

I was very impressed with all students’ enthusiasm and effort.  It continues to sow the seeds for future and continued interest in History, which is after all accounts of events that involved people just like our youngsters but from a different period.
