On Tuesday 19th June, ‘Frontline History’ delivered an engaging workshop on Medicine in WW1 for our GCSE History students. The sessions involved original artefacts from the time such as rifles and hand grenades. The students learnt about trench life and warfare, weapons and the medical evacuation route used on the Western Front. Students were keen to get involved and there were numerous volunteers wearing army uniforms and taking part in the Gas Mask challenge. It was a fantastic day and the students were enthusiastic and very engaged. This is what they thought of the day:

‘The workshop was really good and the two guys were really funny and were very good at explaining about WWI.’

‘I think the workshop was AMAZING! The men that came in were very friendly and the stuff they brought was very interesting. The role play was a good way of portraying how injured soldiers were dealt with.’

‘It was so much fun.’

‘It was a great experience, I loved it!’
