The Great War

Devised to coincide with the centenary of the end of the first World War in November 2018, this workshop is now a part of our core workshop themes.

Your students will learn about soldiers from different countries and cultures and help to retell the tales of battles from across the globe. They will:

  • Travel through the timeline of WWI, visiting they key dates.

  • Protect the Regiment by using their senses to identify the differences between the four Poison Gases.

  • Become skirmishing Battleships and transform the school hall into the battle of Jutland.

  • Take on the dangerous role of a Sapper and navigate the treacherous tunnels under No-Man’s-Land.

  • Design and build bizarre and inventive weapons to succeed across different climates in battles across the globe.
