Ypres 2018 - Year 8
This is a two night trip taking place in March 2018 and one that the History department has been running for the last three years. This has been a highly successful trip for Year 8 students in the past as it coincides with our studies of World War One and what life was like for soldiers during this time. Students study this at the time of the trip. Students will experience the trenches, craters, artillery and uniforms for themselves by visiting specific battle sites, museums and memorials. Students can additionally see items like the gas masks that were used as well as the different types of munitions that were used by both sides.
