Year 7 visit to The Imperial War Museum
Following learning all about World War 2 last term, Year 7 enjoyed a very valuable trip the Imperial War Museum to see the First World War Galleries. The exhibition tells the story of the war through the eyes of the British people and the Empire, both on the home front and the fighting fronts. There were over 1,300 objects on display, ranging from weapons, uniforms and equipment, to diaries and letters, keepsakes and trinkets, photographs, film and art. Each object on display gives a voice to the people who created them, used them or cared for them, and reveals stories not only of destruction, suffering and loss, but also endurance and innovation, duty and devotion, comradeship and love.
