Year 5 History: Trench Digging

Year 5 have been learning about the hardships of life as a soldier in World War 1. To help bring history to life, the children worked with spades and buckets to dig a trench, like British troops over 100 years ago. The ground was very hard, but Year 5 kept their spirits high by working as a team and sharing a laugh to distract themselves from the back-breaking work. Their completed trench will be used in more History lessons to help our pupils gain a greater appreciation of the difficulties faced by soldiers in World War 1.
