Y5 & Y6 are sent to the trenches – 19th November

In Year 5/6’s outdoor learning session this week we focused on our topic work and learnt about WW1 trenches. We had the opportunity to touch on the experience of how hard it was to dig a trench. With the ground wet, we experienced how heavy the mud was to lift on our shovels, how dirty we got and how slippery it was to work in such unpleasant conditions.  Finally, with the help of a hose, we experience having to dig our trench in the rain.
