Cork primary school recreate the Battle of the Somme using Lego

If you need further proof that learning can be fun, then look no further than Sunday’s Well Boys National School who have brought us another moment in history using lego.

You may remember a few months ago that the boys of third class and their teacher Mr O’Connor brought us an amazing video which recreated the Easter Rising.


This time however, the class have taken on an even more ambitious project – the Battle of the Somme.

From the recruiting offices in Cork to the front lines of France, the video takes us on a journey through one of the bloodiest engagements of World War One, and is dedicated to the men of the Munster Fusiliers.



It also seems to be the only ‘war movie’ we can think of that comes with its own blooper reel.

Well done lads, another brilliant creation which we know took a huge amount of preparation – fair play!
