Today Mr. B came along to our school to deliver a WW1 workshop. He was absolutely brilliant and made sure we were all involved in the workshop!
During this Interactive Workshop, we found out about:
Training as a soldier
Life in the trenches
The Kit Bag
Learning about how to put 'puttees' on
How to perform First Aid
