We have been very busy with our World War I topic and have been doing lots of interesting things. We enjoyed our visit to Clydebank Museum where we saw lots of artefacts and learned a lot more information about the first world war.
In class, we split into 5 hometeams. These are Alexandria and Renton, Clydebank, Jamestown and Bonhill, Dumbarton and Helensburgh. We chose these names for our home teams as they were part of the companies in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders during the first world war. In these hometeams we have been working on topic challenges. So far we have completed 6 challenges. These were Trench Warfare Challenge, an Artefacts Challenge, the Role of Women Challenge, the Homefront Challenge, Gas Attacks Challenge and the Princess Mary's Christmas Box Challenge. We really enjoyed working through these challenges and trying on and handling some of the artefacts in the handling kit.
Please leave a comment below telling us which challenge was your favourite and why.
