Makers of History present a World War One Centenary Workshop to help your school mark this unique historical event in a very special way!

Your children will discover why the Great War started and how it changed the lives of everyone living in Britain 100 years ago.

A WW1 nurse and 'Tommy' soldier will spend the day with your class and help them learn all about life during the war years, at home and on the Western Front.

Makers of History living history workshops use role-play, artefacts, hands-on activities, drama, songs and games to bring the past to life in an exciting, memorable way that involves every child in the class.

"Makers of History were extremely professional, well organised and knowledgeable"
Rushall Primary School

Our WW1 centenary workshop offers a colourful, fast paced full day of content, including the following sessions

Why is the World at War?

A Day in the Trenches

Life on the Home Front

Trench Treatments

Animal Heroes

Soldier Slang Game

Mystery WW1 Artefacts

Craft Activity

'Tommy Goes to France' (play performed by children)

This workshop is suitable for KS2 children. We can work with one class or two class in parallel on the same day.

We can tailor the day(s) to accommodate the whole of KS2 (as some schools have requested) and can also offer a KS1 workshop adapting our 'Animal Heroes' session involving puppets and storytelling. Please contact us to discuss options.

All content is age-appropriate. No replica weapons are used.

Makers of History are well known across the North West and West Midlands for our heritage education work at schools and museums. We are qualified historians, with Enhanced CRBs and Public Liability Insurance.
