Sleaford students have been learning about what it was like to go ‘Over the Top’.
As part of the centenary of the end of the First World War a ‘trench’ has been recreated in one of the libraries at St George’s Academy.
It was built by construction students and Year 7 English students will use it with accompanying film footage to imagine what it would have been like waiting to go over the top, to produce a piece of creative writing.
Year 8 history classes will also visit the trench for History Week in the library.
Remembrance-related displays feature in all three of the Academy libraries. Sleaford Museum has also loaned artefacts.
Academy Librarian Jan Curtis said: “In a very small way we are hoping to show them the horrors that soldiers experienced.”
A trench was previously built in the library in 2014 to mark the start of the war.
