NEW First World War workshop trench model

December 1st, 2013 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Hi all! I just thought I’d share this short video on a World War One trench model I am making for my new workshop.

It will be ready for 2014 and will include many things already available in my Blitz School WW2 workshop and my Victorian inventions workshop such as a fun interactive timeline; a chance to handle many genuine and replica artefacts and also related activities, all designed to give you a taste of what life was really like for the men, women and children of the First World War.

But every good idea must start somewhere, so this video showcases a model I am making which pupils will be able to investigate in the workshop, all about trench life for both the Private soldiers and the officers in their more comfortable dugouts. I hope you enjoy it and if you have any comments or ideas for the workshop please let me know.
