World War One Workshop - A Soldiers Tale

Our World War One workshop offers a recount of life in the trenches.

Our 'soldier' will discuss a range of topics with the children starting with how he was recruited and joined up and his training for the Great War.

Our replica equipment is demonstrated and the children get involved in various drills giving them an insight into life as a soldier. We also look at a soldier's daily routine and trench life including digging latrines, the post office, dealing with trench foot and the rats! Each class ends the session with an old fashioned sing-song and hearing a few letters from home.

Our World War One workshop is a great way to cover this topic for children at Key Stage One or Two.
