World War 1

World War 1 Trail and Workshop  

In this thought provoking activity, the children have a chance to explore the Cathedral, looking for signs and symbols of remembrance. Ideal for local history studies, They will learn the stories of some of the local men who fought in World War 1 and visit one of the war memorials in the streets near the Cathedral. Using charcoal, the children will then produce a portait of one of the men from St Albans who fought and died in the war. Finally, the children will learn about the significance of the poppy before planting a poppy seed in the Cathedral grounds as an act of remembrance.
