Amy Hill autograph book KS2/3
A VAD nurse gave her autograph book to the convalescent soldiers to keep them occupied – they drew cartoons, wrote poems and signed their names.
Trace the battle of the Somme through the places the soldiers were wounded online or draw storyboard cartoons and write poetry in the fashion of the day.
The Hill and the Flux family
The students will look at how the war affected a large family, typical of many local families, considering the choices and the consequences, which scattered this family all over the world in the aftermath of the war.
