Arboretum and Ledicot Trenches Trip
On Tuesday 27th November, Arboretum and Ledicot Classes visited Park Hall Farm near Oswestry to experience a day in WW1 replica trenches. It was a valuable ‘hands-on’ experience which brought the time soldiers spent in the trenches to life.
The children had a small taste of life for a soldier during WW1 from the cramped conditions on the front line to the weight of the guns and kit they had to carry. The experience was made even more real for the children because of the cold and wet weather!
