World War One Workshop

Let us take you back to the trenches of World War One. We will look at the Tommy’s and what life was like for them. The students will explore real life accounts from different people who lived through those terrible times. Find out how people kept their spirits up during times of hardship.

We will explore how the war started with the assasination attempt of Franz Ferdinand, the archduke of Austria-Hungary. We will learn about Gavrilo Princip and how he planned the attack with the help of the Black Hand group.

Why Do People Like To Use Us?

First of all, we take you on a journey. In addition to this we use lots props and artefacts to bring our workshops to life. The whole day will involve the children. There will be calls for discussions, acting, performing and educating – all in the same day. As a result, by the end of the day the children will be able to demonstrate a vast array of new knowledge, vocabulary and skills relating to the topic.
