Year 6 went to Belgium on Friday 30th September,  based on our current topic ‘Conflict and Harmony’. After a long coach ride, our first stop was Tyne Cot Cemetery. There were lots of graves and we looked for our relatives on the grave stones and the panels. Our second stop was lunch at the trenches. Once we ate our lunch we played and explored the trenches, including going underground in the dark tunnels. After getting changed out of our muddy clothes, we travelled to Menin Gate in Ypres, where we also went to shops and bought lots of chocolate! As soon as we finished shopping, we went to a restaurant to have dinner.  We went to the last post ceremony at Menin Gate.  Despite being tired afterwards, everyone had a great time!  Written by Millie H and Annie R (Morpurgo)

My favourite part of the trip was buying and tasting the Belgium chocolate which I haven’t finished! I also enjoyed looking around Menin Gate because I found one off my possible relatives who served the great world war, as a solider, who had my surname. It was so fun.

Some of the Year 6’s travelled to Belgium to look around some of the cemeteries and go to the shops. The children who stayed at school made a small model of a trench with Mrs Harris and decorated it with straw, sand and lolly sticks. I was one of the children who stayed at school and I enjoyed making a mini trench. Written by Brooke G (Morpurgo)
