Year 6 Centenary Event at Dover Castle

On Wednesday 7th November, Year 6 were invited to Dover Castle to take part in a day of activities exploring the centenary of the end of WW1. Despite it being horrendously windy, we had a fantastic day learning about some of the truths of WW1. One of the highlights of the day was having a chance to watch the WW1 anti-aircraft gun (one of only 3 in the world) being loaded and fired by re-enactors. We also got to spend time with actors and historians who taught us about parts of war we don't often think about at school - like logistics, tank design and nursing for soldiers in the trenches. All of us left having learned something new about the Great War, and thought about it in a different way.
