WW1 HISTORY WORKSHOP

"The room was transformed into a WW1 trench, where the children could experience what life was like for the soldiers. There was a wide variety of authentic artefacts for the children to explore, and the knowledge and professional of staff was second to none"

Engaging – Immersive – Hands-on

Our WW1 workshops are an inspiring way to introduce the Great War to your pupils, or an exciting experience to reinforce the topics they have already covered. Our aim is simple; bring WW1 to life in the heart of your classroom.

 

Our WW1 workshops are tailored to your learning objectives and school timetable to make sure we meet all your group requirements. We can run several sessions in one day, and tailor each session to the needs of each group.

 

Pupils will have the opportunity to handle a range of genuine and replica objects in the safety of your classroom.

 

Our workshops are suitable for all age ranges and are tailored accordingly:

KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4
