We had an excellent WW1 workshop with Durham University. They brought many artefacts to look at from the Great War. We had the chance to try some on and ask Paddy more about each item.
We also used some of our newly learnt knowledge from the University workshop, to replicate crawling through the trenches with 'full kit' on.
Year 1 also visited the War Memorial at Mowbray Park. We looked at all of the poppies and all of the names of fallen soldiers.
