Drama supporting our learning
As you know Year 6 have been learning all about World War 1. On Thursday we gave the children the opportunity of acting out exactly how the war started. Children were put into small groups and were all allocated a country. They had to read their lines (these were discussions between the countries’ leaders and their advisors) and decide whether they were allies or axis to Britain in the years 1914-1918.
The children really got into character (there were even a few accents thrown in!) and created a ‘for and against’ side to World War One.
They really are becoming experts now and having a lot of fun in the process. Why don’t you ask them to tell you all about it, I’m sure they’d love to!
