Hands-on History: First World war centenary special session
- How heavy is a grenade?
- What did it feel like to be a tommy?
- What is trench art?
- What did soldiers say to their families back home?
This fascinating session is delivered at your school. Your class will be able handle original objects from our collection, some of which are being allowed outside of the museum and into schools for the first time to mark one hundredth anniversary of the start of the First World War. In addition to seeing and touching the objects, which include recruitment posters printed in Richmond, a match box with a bullet lodged inside, flying goggles and gas masks, students will also be able to hear Green Howards voices through their letters, diaries and poetry.
We will tailor the content of the session to meet your students’ specific learning needs, areas of interest or school project work relating to this important anniversary period.
This session is suitable for KS2 and 3 students.
