What happened to Gunner Archie Smith?

FREE scheme of work when you book two First World War workshops

Inspire your pupils to create high quality writing using the touching story of Harold ‘Archie’ Smith, a First World War tank crew gunner. We will provide you with a short scheme of work containing classroom activities that bring Archie’s letters to life. The emphasis is on using historic letters to facilitate good quality writing, so you don’t have to be studying the First World War as your history topic to take part. During their visit pupils will take part in Archie Smith adaptions of our ‘Tommy in the Trenches’ and ‘First World War Tank Experience’ workshops.
