KS2 had a talk about World War 1

Mr Cuthbertson talked about the trenches and how the German and English soldiers had the same idea that they would dig under each other’s trenches and blow them up. Most of the soldiers that were in the trenches were buried and sadly died there.

His job was to dig back the trenches and see what he could find. Sometimes he found the soldiers that got buried and left in the trenches. He said he was not scared when he found them he felt sorry for them that they had lost their life.

He also brought in some of the things he had found when he was digging. He brought in four different helmets and a rifle that still had its wood on.  He also had a rifle that had rotted away over the last 100 years and he brought in lots of other lovely things.
