Barge Pier, Shoeburyness, Southend-on-Sea

It was great for our younger students to learn about the Poppies: Wave through the use of digital media. The hands on approach gave them a tool to question and promote understanding about their local history and themes surrounding the First World War. It helps to establish links for when they re-visit these topics back in the classroom
