Shoebox Trenches

Year 6 have started to make their shoebox trenches. They have spent some time exploring what trenches looked like and what they needed in order to function and they embarked on the mission to create their own trenches which would be fit for purpose for a soldier fighting in WW1.

They began by designing their trench, deciding on suitable materials, thinking about proportions and referring back to their original design brief.

They shared their workload by carrying out different tasks to get their projected completed in good time. They especially enjoyed using tools such as saws, wire cutters, pliers and glue guns (in accordance with the risk assessments they produced).
