WWI Commemoration Museum

In 2014 all of the children and staff at Marston Green Infant Academy have worked so hard to create a museum of work to commemorate World War I.  Each class studied a different aspect of the War and their work was displayed in our hall.  The Deputy Mayor of Solihull and visitors from our local area were invited to come and have a look around the museum and pay a donation which was given to the ‘Help for Heroes’ charity.
Here are some of the aspects that we have learnt about:
Nursery – Poppies
Class One – Life 100 year ago
Class Two – Life 100 years ago
Class Three – Life 100 years ago
Class Four – Mary Michael
Class Five – The Royal Family
Class Six – Edith Cavell
Class Seven – Animals at War
Class Eight – The end of the War
Class Nine – Trenches and Planes
We do hope you managed to come and visit our museum.  Everybody worked incredibly hard and produced some amazing work.  Visitors to our museum were asked to write a short comment about the museum before they left.  Here are some of the comments that were written:
“What a wonderful presentation.  You should all be very proud of your hard work in putting together such a moving and evocative piece of history.  Long may we remember this period, especially as we approach the anniversary on the 4th August 2014.”  Deputy Mayor of Solihull
