Brookvale High School
Groby
Leicester

To support their Year 9 English studies around the topic "World War 1 - poetry, prose and propaganda", a World War 1 day was organised for students by the school in association with Historic England

Students were able to learn about the origin of The Great War, the state of the Regular British Army at the start of the conflict, and the various methods of recruitment used in different phases of the war.

Students were able to explore the impact on all areas of life of Kitchener's recruitment campaigns and the formation of "Pals" Battalions, the training given to the volunteers, and the wider social aspects of the conflict, relating this to work done earlier in the term.
