Staffordshire Regiment Museum

History         The Trench Experience

The KS3 ASDAN History students have been studying the First World War and recently visited the Staffordshire Regiment Museum to experience a First World War trench.

At the museum pupils saw and handled weapons the soldiers used and also were able to wear their uniforms. They experienced in a small way the horrors the soldiers endured as the museum had a replica of the trenches the men lived, fought and died in. This gave pupils a much greater understanding of the realities of the war and helped them consolidate their learning.

The trip will be a valuable experience in a number of ways and that, as well as helping with their work in History, it helped them understand the debt we all owe those who died in the world wars.History1
