Students from Year 9 took part in a memorable ’hands on’ Great War History day with artefacts, led by Andrew Spooner (Skylark Battlefield Tours).

Posted on 30th January 2017

In the morning students enjoyed a presentation based on several hundred original artefacts from the trenches of the Great War to supplement what they had learned in the classroom. This provided interesting real life stories illustrating the objects in daily use for a soldier on the front line with the opportunity to get involved and to ask questions.
In the afternoon, students in small groups were able to view the objects close up and to follow individual lines of enquiry. For some, this was feeling the texture of a soldier’s uniform whilst for others it was feeling the weight of a Lee Enfield rifle, reading letters from the front, picking up an artillery shell, grenade, looking through a periscope, examining the contents of a surgeon’s field medical kit or feeling the sharp points of German barbed wire.
Many thanks to Mr. Spooner for an informative and engaging day for our students.
