The Battle Of The Somme 100 Years on

In History today, those in 7MDM who had completed their Black Death project were set a challenge to investigate why we remember the Battle of the Somme 100 years from ‘zero hour.’ The pupils found lots of relevant information and said that this clip gave them a significant insight into the enormity of the battle

Poem by Oliver Wrigley

The only thing that I could hear was the ringing in my ears  of the black murderous bolder that set alight my battle brothers.


The only thing I could smell was the ash of the fiery water gun that brought my family to ashes.


The only thing I can remember is Death
