Les élèves de CM1 et CM2 du Programme français bilingue ont étudié la Première Guerre mondiale.

Pour appréhender la réalité des combats et l’enfer des attaques et des tranchées, ils ont regardé un extrait du film “Les croix de bois”, d’après le roman de Roland Dorgelès, et lu des lettres écrites pas les “poilus”. Ils se sont plus particulièrement documenté sur la bataille de Verdun (1916).

Par ce travail, les élèves ont rendu hommage au courage des soldats et honoré leur mémoire. Ils ont avant tout retenu l’importance du devoir de mémoire et une grande leçon de paix.

They have gathered information about the battle of Verdun (1916).
