Animals were key to life in World War 1, some made an invaluable contribution, others made life almost intolerable. Listen to audio files from family members which bring alive life in the trenches and explore just how these creatures changed lives. Pupils are invited to write in role as an animal - friend or foe - creating a diary entry from a very different perspective.
A Century’s Memories was an oral history project undertaken by Bath & North East Somerset Council to commemorate the Centenary of the First World War. Young students and army cadets interviewed older residents across the district about what their families and communities had done during the War, and how the War had impacted on their lives. An illustrated book and Key Stage 2 Learning Pack were produced using the stories shared, and the interviews were archived at Bath Record Office.
