WW1 Project at Normanby Hall
To extend knowledge of students across North Lincolnshire, Normanby Hall set up a three day project to teach 4 students from each school in the local area about the life of soldiers during WW1. Jack Shaw, Martin Thorpe-Ortiz, Harry Griffiths and Shannon McLaughlin (from The Axholme Academy) were just a few of many students from different schools attending the project.
They will attend for three days, 31st January, 28th March and 20th June. The first session comprised of activities throughout the day, researching and tasks. Each school was given a different soldier to research and find out certain information. The academy’s soldier to research was Robert Fulcher in the 2nd Grenadiers. Over the course of the three days the students are to make a short film about the life of their given soldier.
