At the beginning of the year, Y5 went to visit the historic church as part of their learning question ‘ How did WW1 affect Southampton.’ They had the opportunity to learn about it’s history through WW1 and also how to march like a soldier. Here’s what they thought of their time there:

‘I found out that in the olden days while the soldiers were at war, they wrote home to their loved ones.’ – Minahil

‘We learnt that soldiers could be out fighting for at least two years. I enjoyed the marching, it was outstanding.’ – Laila

‘I learnt lots of soldiers went to St Andrew’s church and got lots of food during the war.’ – Yumna
