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 then went back to the War Memorial and read our letters. We made poppies for the school's Remembrance display and took part in the school's Remembrance Day on Friday 9th November.
On Tuesday 6th November, we were lucky enough to Casterton College's Arts Extravaganza, along with Year 2. It was themed on "The Greatest Showman" and showcased the creative talents of Casterton's pupils. From singing to gymnastics to a fashion show, the show had something for everyone!
