Year 9 pupils recreate World War One letters sent home, having studied the life of soldiers through the trenches

Thursday 16 December 2021

This half-term, Year 9 have been learning about different people’s experiences of World War One in their History lessons, including women on the Home Front and the contribution of colonial soldiers. 

As part of this unit, students have studied what it was like to fight in a trench and the impact this had on soldiers’ physical and mental health. 

Students were asked to produce a piece of homework imagining they were a soldier in a World War One trench writing a letter home, or a journalist reporting on a visit to the trenches. 

Below are some outstanding examples of the work produced.
