History students step back in time using virtual reality

How do you bring history to life when it happened over 100 years ago? Thanks to virtual reality our Year 10 History students were able to go back in time and experience life in a World War One trench.

Using VR headsets and footage created by Time Travel Education, students were able to be fully immersed on the battlefield and see for themselves what it would have been like for an injured soldier. The students were guided by a WW1 medic and historical interpreter who demonstrated the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) chain of evacuation and the key surgical techniques of the time.

The immersive experience will be invaluable to students understanding of the ‘Medicine on the British Sector of the Western Front’ unit of their History GCSE.

Whilst the VR sessions were for Year 10, during lunchtime, students from all Year groups were invited to an object handling workshop where they got to try on WW1 uniform and learn to tie a tourniquet.
