Somme Centre Visit

10KB and 10BN went to visit the Somme Centre as part of their understanding of the First World War.  They got a guided tour of the museum and participated in a workshop which demonstrated various types of weapons that would have been used by soldiers in the trenches from 1914-1918.  Finally, they had an educational talk on Ireland’s role in the First World War, which included the 10th and 16th Irish Divisions as well as the 36th Ulster Division.  Pupils were brought back to 1914 and learnt how men were recruited, trained and lived in the trenches.
