At the start of November, pupils at Currie High embarked upon an interdisciplinary project to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One. Activities ranged from reading war poetry in English to researching song lyrics in Music to learning about conscientious objectors in Modern Studies. In Art, pupils made stunning 3D poppies, whilst in History those pupils who had been on the Trenches trip shared their most poignant memories. In Modern Languages, pupils researched a member of their family who had been involved in any conflict or a local soldier who fell in the Great War, and wrote a personal profile of this person in French or German. Social Education classes looked the topic from a Rights Respecting viewpoint ie that all children have the right to be brought up in a conflict-free country.
The final product turned out to be amazing and is on display in the LRC.
Parents/Carers are welcome to sign into the school and have a quick look at their child’s work in our display.
Special thanks to Mrs Owens and Mrs Marriott whose help in creating the display has been invaluable.
