WWI Battlefields (Ypres & the Somme) trip, February 8th-11th 2018 (4 days – 3 ½ nights).
Following an immensely successful inaugural trip, the RE, History and English Departments are running their second educational trip to the Battlefields of World War One in Northern France and Belgium next year. This trip allows pupils to gain a more detailed insight into various RE topics including Religion & Suffering, Capital Punishment and Religion & Conflict. It also includes looking at the weapons, tactics and technology of the First World War whilst allowing students a more detailed overview of the ‘historic environment’ (The British sector of the Western Front; injuries, treatments and the trenches) element of the GCSE History course. In English, it will help them to understand the topic of War Poetry including visiting sites where the poetry was written, including a visit to Mametz Wood.
