Soon after the start of the new academic year the British Motor Museum will be hosting WW1 History Week for KS2 to KS4 from 25-29 September. Commemorating the centenary of WW1, this themed Curriculum Week offers pupils an exciting day of immersive learning with role play activities and object handling.
Children will take part in a range of different narratives from meeting our Tommy in the Trenches and learning about the conditions soldiers lived in on the front lines, to visiting the Casualty Clearing Station and finding out how injuries sustained in battle led to the discovery of new medical techniques!
Our Sergeant Major will then take pupils through recruitment where they will learn about the requirements for British citizens wishing to join the Army, meet the people who stayed on the home front, explore how the First World War affected those left behind, and see how attitudes changed throughout the years of war.
Pupils will also meet a member of the Tank Corps and get the fantastic opportunity to explore the replica Mark IV Tank, on loan to us from The Tank Museum and used in the hit Stephen Spielberg movie War Horse.
The cost is £12.50 per pupil and the day runs from 10am to 2.30pm. There
is a limit of 30 pupils per workshop. The Museum’s travel support fund
is also available for schools to assist with the cost of coach
