In Flander Fields
The first lesson of the WWI project day was English. The students of KVARTA were divided into two groups as usual and worked with their English teachers. In one of the two groups the students found out about the origins of the tradition of wearing red or white poppies on the coats on 11th November. They watched a short video about the Remembrance Day in Britain in 2013, then they read about the poem In Flanders Fields in Wikipedia and in the end they listened to the song of the same name. The teacher also shared her experience about her visit to some WWI cemeteries in France with crosses in rows and rows. In the end a Czech website vets.cz was introduced. In the other group the students were in the IT room and worked on their own looking up key words in texts about WWI. Then the teacher wrote the key words on the board and all the students learnt them.
