Bringing Tastes Of History to life...
 

School Days | The War to End War


What will happen during the day?

A great way to enrich any study of the impact of The Great War on the lives of men, women and children in Britain or on the Western Front between 1914 and 1918.

As ever the emphasis is on having FUN, using artefacts, role-play, and games to teach history in an engaging and meaningful way.

A World War 1 day can include any or all or the following topics:

o  The Road to War: how did it all start?
o 
Home by Christmas: Germany attacks, the "Race to the Sea", stalemate and the Christmas Truce;
o 
Britain under Fire: the first Blitz and air raid precautions;
o 
"Your Country Needs You!": joining up, training and equipment;
o 
Muck and Bullets: trench life, the battles and "going over the top";
o 
Shot at Dawn;
o 
Home Front: the U-Boat stranglehold, rationing, women at war;
o 
The Guns Fall Silent: armistice, homecoming, the "war to end war" and remembrance;
o 
Women's Suffrage: are you a Suffragist or a Suffragette?
