World War 1

England, Scotland, Wales

World War 1 affected nearly everyone in Britain. Men and boys were sent off to fight, while around two million women took over jobs that had once been done by men. Meals were smaller (and MUCH less appealing), and at night all street lights were dimmer. What would it have been like to live in Britian in wartime? Let’s find out...

Your class will…

  • Explore a significant turning point in British history
  • Explore the timeline of the war, and the lives of the people at home and in the trenches
  • Explore the stories of significant people in wartime
  • Have a great day!

Option 1 : Creative Play workshops are short and sweet, designed to be a burst of creativity to keep children engaged. As the sessions are usually only an hour long, we can work with four classes across the school day.

Option 2 : One Day Drama packages offer a full day workshop led by an experienced facilitator who collaborates with pupils in order to explore the topic through drama. The focus of a One Day Drama workshop is always the content and learning, but we do offer the opportunity for an informal peer to peer sharing session, where the children can share what they have done throughout the day. This isn’t necessarily a performance, but an opportunity for children to take ownership of the experience. They can share their learning with their peers, or if you wanted, parents.

Tell us more about your classes knowledge of the topic in advance of the workshop so the content we deliver can hit the spot!

"The WWI workshops are very cleverly put together and you did a great job of bringing it to life. Lots of positive comments from everyone showed what a good experience we had. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it enhanced the learning that is happening in the classroom perfectly. The opportunity for parents and other year groups to share in the learning was a great bonus. Your Director was energetic and enthusiastic throughout the day and engaged even the quietest most reluctant children well."
