“Thank you so much - y5 loved it! What an incredible insight into history from a brilliant educator!"

Inspired by the story of a real First World War stretcher bearer, our unique WW1 workshop centres around bandages and brotherhood in a series of fun activities that are guaranteed to enhance your pupils' knowledge of what is was really like to have been in the trenches and the front line.
Beginning with an essential interactive WW1 timeline for that all-important chronological knowledge, pupils then experience a soldier's day to day life, basic training including learning how to march, and of course some stretcher bearer first aid tuition, for an overall experience that immerses them in the life of a First World War soldier in the very best way possible, with a great deal of hands-on experience and with a large amount of good humour and fun.
But that's not all, because with many detailed replica artefacts to investigate; an increasing range of free teaching resources, links to other websites and optional genuine WW1 souvenir pennies to purchase, we can guarantee a very effective learning experience for every pupil that will last before, during and long after the experience of bringing the First World War to life in your primary school.
ATTENTION PRIMARY SCHOOL TEACHERS!
A great price and souvenirs too! all workshops come at a standard price (+ mileage for out of area bookings) and an optional GENUINE GEORGE V WW1 PENNY at just £1 each
Suitable for between 1 and 4 KS1/2 classes in a single day (but, of course, one class is much better as they can access ALL the activities in a full immersive experience)
Starts with a fun interactive timeline to consolidate pupils' chronological understanding (can be delivered as a full KS2 one hour assembly, regardless of the number of classes you want teaching)
NO GUNS policy: absolutely no weapons involved at any time, whilst still remaining entirely historically accurate as per a stretcher bearer's 'non-combatant' role
Planned and delivered by a highly experienced QTS teacher with wide experience both in the state and private sector
