Hands on History!
On the 14th of January 2016 students had a special opportunity to learn in detail what happened during the First World War. A good friend of Middlewich High School, Mr King, who owns a great deal of original artefacts, gave Year 9 a talk on items in his collection. He told us that ‘each piece has its own story’! Students were very lucky to get so close to the collection and even allowed to hold each artefact and even try some clothes on .
Mr King got many of the students involved, inviting them to act out certain roles that included: village boy, soldiers of all ranks (both English and German) and nurses. The students said that it was a privilege, as Mr King comes every year to Middlewich High School and this is the 11th year that he has given Year 9 students this opportunity.
