Primary school

Year 6 - Trench Warfare, 1914

The children used the game of 'Dodgeball' to re-enact the battle between the Allies (Jade Class) and the Central Powers (Diamond Class), in 1914.

The children were very excited and were reminded of how the soldiers must have felt at the beginning of the Great War. At this point, they were oblivious to the horrors of war, as this was unknown to them.   Soldiers on both sides were proud to fight for their country.
