WW1 Learning – Year 2 in the trenches

7th November 2018 in Year 2
On Monday, Year 2 ventured back in time to World War One. To enhance their writing, the children spent some time weaving through the maze-like trenches set up in Blisland Class. The sounds of war, accompanied by the darkness, made for great firsthand experience of what it would have felt like on the Western Front.
As well as this, the children were briefed on what to expect when going to war. They practised marching, saluting and following orders from a British Army officer.
Well done, Year 2!
