World War 2

Imagine coming into school one morning to be told you are to be evacuated to the countryside ... This is WW2 coming from the home front. Come and learn about how the war started, how it ended and who fought in it. Explore evacuees, air-raids, rationing, jobs, and what it was like for life to change so dramatically!

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
  • Have a great day!

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!

"Our P6's had a fantastic day with your Director and staff, pupils and parents were amazed they could do such an impressive performance in just one day. The enthusiasm from Shona was catching & the children responded really well to her. She took time to involve all the children and really brought out the best in what we considered to be our stage fright group- their confidence was fantastic. Super co-operative learning and team work. Plus the organisation and efficiency of your company was fantastic! "
