On Thursday 15th October as part of a ‘Great War Module’ the students of Scotton Lingerfield School were introduced to Scott Knowles a WWI re-enactor.
The impact of a fully kitted out ‘World War I Tommy’ caught the students imagination and during the course of his engaging talk, learnt about a soldiers uniform, equipment and weaponry. Even the daily routines and the smells were recreated.
The students over the coming weeks will be involved in two further modules. One relates to Knaresborough and the surrounding villages and the impact of the war and finally a module were the students compile evidence boards on the biographical details they have researched related to specific Scotton soldiers.
