The children have been sharing their own family history. Here’s a picture of a Great Grandad who was a soldier.
P7 at Braehead are creating models of WW1 trenches.
We’ve been working with our friends to create Poppy Necklaces.
We’ve been making posters to help us think about how to deal with conflict.
This lucky class had a visit from RSM Campbell who told us about his job in the Armed Forces. He brought lots of his equipment to let us see. We enjoyed hearing about how the army helps us.

Greenbrae have been practising their marching. Check out twitter for some videos! It was tricky!
