Huge thanks to students at Gosport and Fareham Multi-Academy Trust who have researched and contributed objects and stories for our World War 1 Explorer resource. Their discoveries have taken them to Nelson, New Zealand, Enniskillen in Northern Ireland, Enfield in London, Hucknall in Nottinghamshire; and across the battlefields of Northern Europe and Gallipoli. Personal family items shared include a Memorial Plaque issued to the next-of-kin of Private Alexander Reid who was killed on 5th October 1915.
Have a look at their work on The Earth Museum by following one of the link buttons on this page. We are now going to spend a little time adding a few more stories, and developing this learning resource further as part of a wider programme aimed at KS2-3. We will be launching our first ‘global citizenship through Geography, STEM and History’ learning suite of resources in Autumn 2020, and offering a programme in support of Arts Council England’s Artsmark Scheme.
