Our Christian Value for September is 'Friendship'

World War 1 week September 2014

We all learned a lot during the week - all about what would have been happening in Leintwardine at that time 100 years ago.
Peter Weston, a local military historian, came to help children research family members who were in the War. He also spent a day showing us how to march and letting us try on WW1 costumes.
Appletree Theatre ran two workshops so that the children could learn about being a nurse at Hightrees (now Leintwardine Manor) and how to bandage wounded soldiers, write letters and sew handkerchieves. Appletree Theatre was kindly funded by Leintwardine History Society.
A selection of our work was included in Leintwardine History Society's WW1 weekend exhibition - well done Leintwardine School!
