I used part of this with my primary 4-7 class today and it worked really well. The illustrations about life in the trenches were just great and using some of the information on the sheets helped children have more of an appreciation of the conditions. Thank you

Market place activity was excellent, slightly adjusted info for my low ability year 8s and it worked really well!
