There was a spot of time travel in one English lesson last week when Mrs Poll’s class was transported back to WWI thanks to the highly innovative creation of a war time trench betwixt chairs and tables in the classroom. Wearing costumes from the period, the children learnt more about the war and what life was like for soldiers in the trenches. They also discussed Tom Palmer’s historical novel Over the Line. Mr Palmer is visiting Beaudesert this week to coincide with the week in which the WWI centenary falls. Set in 1914, his book Over the Line is about a professional footballer’s experience in the Great War.
