J2 Visit Whittington Barracks

J2P visited Whittington Barracks in Staffordshire  to launch their topic on War and Remembrance.  They were met by Bill who was dressed in full WW1 soldier’s uniform.  The children learned about Robert Keal Powell of the Staffordshire Regiment and enjoyed looking at artefacts and letters that he had written home.

Before leaving the barracks, J2 spent time in the WW1 trenches, complete with the sound of gunfire! It was an incredible learning experience.p7050123p7050122-2
