Ten gifted & talented yr 9 students took part in a workshop called 'All Over by Christmas' which was run by the History & Languages advisers for the local authority. 

Throughout the day students explored the idea that when world war 1 began people thought it would only last four months and would be 'all over by Xmas!?' Students translated letters written in French & German by French & German soldiers who fought during the War and compared the experiences of those soldiers with British soldiers. They examined the Christmas truth and discovered that it wasn't all about football!
