The Battle of the Somme has gone down in history as one of the bloodiest battles ever fought. In terms of casualties, the first day of the battle (1st July 1916) saw the highest number of British casualties in one day.
The Battle of the Somme was intended to be the Big Push to win the war. The key events of the battle will be brought to life for your students with visits to sites including the 1916 Somme Museum in Albert, Lochnagar Crater, Thiepval Memorial to the Missing and Newfoundland Memorial Park.
Low on numbers? You may like to consider teaming up with your school's English department to make this a cross-curricular trip if they're looking at WW1 poetry.
