This week, Peter Jackson’s film “They Shall Not Grow Old” will be shown every lunchtime on the Wyke big screen as the college commemorates the centenary of the end of the First World War.
The screening will also be supported by poppy sales, fact sheets and word searches. James Goodchild and Andy Bentley from the History department are encouraging all students to participant. James said, “I think it’s important that all our students are aware of the significance of this particular Remembrance Sunday. We would also like other subjects at Wyke to link their lessons to this historical occasion.”
As part of the A Level History curriculum, a party of students and staff are visiting Belgium later this month on a Battlefield Tour.
Copies of Peter Jackson’s film are being distributed to all schools and colleges in the UK. The trailer for this amazing piece of work is available on YouTube and will be broadcast of the BBC.
