Monday 5th June – Children work as historians to gather information on our fallen ‘lads’

Year 3 started the new half term working as historians to search an online database for details of the lads from the roll of honour. With only the most basic information to guide them, they searched the Commonwealth War Graves website to identify the lads and save certificates for each of our fallen. They had to learn all about how the information is presented and how to enter the data into the various search fields on the website. This is a genuinely authentic historical research task and Year 4 will be picking up the trail on Wednesday. Next week the children will be finding out where the men lived before plotting this information on contemporary maps of the local area.
