We used an online register to search for people who had been in the war who had the same name as us. Alison brought photos of her Grandad Maurice and his war documents in for us to have a look at and found out he was in the 4th battalion of the Coldstream guards. The old documents were amazing but were really difficult to read.
We made our own poppies from melting plastic bottles and listened to the Last Post. We watched a video of young men going to war and tried to think about how they would have felt.
We learnt a lot about respect and thinking about the past.
