Woeful First World War

29 March, 2019

Year 8 historians were treated to a fantastic session ran by Kevin from the history squad.

The History Squad is a professional historical interpretation company committed to injecting energy into the presentation of history. They use use compelling storytelling and astounding weapons demonstrations, to breathe life into history, making it fun for all those involved. Year 8 historians were treated to an hours session where they learnt about early gas masks and life during the First World War. This work shop was designed to complement their work within history. Pupils got to handle artefacts and to dress as a First World War soldier. We would like to thank the history squad for a fantastic session. Staff and pupils were captivated by Kevin’s work and his performance of the last post was incredibly moving.
