We enjoyed our visit to Gentleshaw Church last Thursday, where we were able to find out about the villagers who had fought in the first world war. We looked at a log book that recorded all of their names. We also went outside into the graveyard to look at 2 of the soldiers graves. We were fascinated to learn that the beautiful stained glass window, which is a focal point in the church, was actually the village's war memorial.
We continued the day back in school gathering information from the school's old record books, researching soldiers from our families on the computer and making poppies for a display.
