Remembrance Week – Year 1

” During Remembrance week we looked at the story ‘Flo of the Somme’ by Hilary Robinson and Martin Impey. It has detailed pictures and talks about the role of animals in World War 1, especially medical dogs. We found out that guide dogs began after 1918 because of all the soldiers who returned with sight problems. On Thursday we had a special visitor, a guide dog called Lucy and her handler. We were able to ask lots of questions. To say thank you, we made a special card, with textures on, using wool, foam shapes and tissue paper.

Finally, in the woods, we used the blindfolds and a nightline to see what it is like to move around without being able to see.”
