Hartlebury Museum

What a fantastic day we had learning about life during World war One.

First, we were told about what a soldier’s life was like in ‘The Trenches’. We studied and sketched World war One artifacts, we learned that Hartlebury Castle was turned into a hospital for wounded soldiers.

We looked around the Castle ~ it was magnificent! Then we visited the VAD (Voluntary Aid Detachment) exhibition. There was a quiz to complete, games to play and we were even allowed to dress up as nurses and soldiers; it was great fun.

After that, we had a taste of what it would have been like in a classroom  100 years ago. Some of us really liked it!

We had a wonderful day ~ a great start to our History project on World War One. Our teachers were really proud of all of us.
