Brave Britain at War Workshop Ks1, Ks2 & Ks3

Meet Vera a WW I Nurse.


The workshop will start with the pupils meeting  Vera, an Edwardian lady, who became a nurse. She talks about the beginning of the Great War,  describes seeing men being recruited in to the army and how we shouldn’t worry because it is all going to be over by Christmas.

Vera worked in France during the Great war and she talks about life as a nurse and asks children to help her with the daily task of folding sheets and bandages etc. whilst describing what she has seen.

The pupils will be encouraged to take part throughout the workshop.



Meet a man from the minister who will have your pupils on a train and being evacuated away from the London bombs,  But what will you pack into your suitcase and who will you be staying with. What does that feeling like to be all those miles away from home.

Find out in our fully interactive workshop.

Later in the workshop the pupils get a chance to meet a solider Private Sid who will tell you all about life in the army and the kind of jobs you will do.  But all he is waiting for is a red cross parcel from home.
