We visited St Nicholas' Church in Cottesmore to find out who Charles Faulkner was. Some eagle-eyed children spotted his name etched into the bronze placard on the war memory. They discovered that he was Private in the army during World War 1. We took rubbings of all of the placards and reflected on what it must have been like to be in the Great War.
In the subsequent week, we wrote letters to Charles Faulkner, wondering and imagining what he went through from the moment he signed up. We made poppies for the school's Remembrance display and took part in the school's Remembrance Day on Friday 9th November.
