On Friday 26th January Year 7 & 8 Scholars went to the incredible one and only: Imperial war museum. This visit was very educational and taught us a humongous amount of new information. Ms. Voisey showed us all around and took us to two different exhibits! The first exhibit was to do with the tragic events of the 9/11 attacks (On 11 September 2001, terrorists hijacked four aeroplanes and deliberately flew them into targets in the United States of America. These acts of terrorism killed almost 3,000 people and triggered the subsequent conflict in Afghanistan. http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/events/the_september_11th_terrorist_attacks). The exhibition showed us how it affected the people of the world and they showed the art that was expressed during the time of that terrible incident and after. Some of the citizens of the world were incredibly distraught because of these events and most of the paintings contained dark or dull colours i.e. grey, black, white, brown. We believe that this symbolises the depressive state that shocked the union. In the second

exhibition there were many sculptures and paintings and real-life artefacts that were on display- some being actual pieces of a tank that was used in WW2 and WW1 and it taught us a lot about all of the wars.
