Tommy's War

Tommy's War is a school's activity day, which I have planned with storyteller Andy Messer for the Centenary of WW1. Children will learn about a real volunteer unit from their area, in the build up to the Battle of the Somme, and will experience something of life in the trenches. I have devised a 'trench system' that can be assembled after the dinner ladies have cleared away after lunch from cardboard boxes and large sheets of polystyrene.
