Trench Experience

Service Pack: Core Service

Subject: English History

This innovative new virtual-reality app brings life in the trenches to life, and is ideal for History and English teachers covering World War 1 and trench life and warfare in general.

To use this new, separate app (download for Apple or Android), you will need Google cardboard VR glasses, available for few pounds here (fits most modern larger smartphones) or for smaller phones here. For a fully immersive effect, be sure to listen to the sound by using your phone’s headphones.

This stimulus writing activity to use with the app can be combined with an mp3 download so pupils can hear the stimulus being read, as well as the sounds of the trenches in the background.

Access to Learning Resources both in and away from school site is freely available with a TRUSTnet Core Service subscription.
