 Back in Time to the TrenchesBangor Academy Year 10 History students time-travelled to the trenches of World War One this week.

Our historians were learning about what life was like for soldiers in the Battle of the Somme - the notoriously brutal five month battle which ended on 18th November 1916, just over 100 years ago last month. 

The Educational Outreach Team from Armagh City Council visited the Academy's History Department to run a fabulous workshop which involved drama, donning  uniforms and handling some genuine artefacts to help them imagine the realities of trench warfare.
