Yesterday we went on a local area walk to the Angel of Poplar statue at Poplar Recreation Ground. We visited the site of the original Upper North Street School and stood where the bomb was dropped. We all found the experience very moving and touching. We couldn’t believe how young the children who lost their lives were. We sketched some houses that are still standing from 1917 for our class display. We also sketched some maps of the local area and compared them to how Poplar looked in 1917.
