World War 1

ww1 remembrance
Year 4 used drama to commemorate 100 years since WW1 ended. In small groups, they created their own version of Chapel Street, Altrincham, ‘The bravest little street in Britain’, as 161 men signed up from this one street when the war began. Each group were given a name of a soldier from the Cheshire Regiment and created their home on Chapel street, they then used silent drama to act out what life at home may have been like before the war began, when they waved the men off to war, receiving news from the front line and finally ending with the news of whether their soldier returned. The children demonstrated a mature and respectful attitude throughout and gained a deeper level of understanding of what life was like, not just for soldiers and nurses at war, but also for the family and friends left behind.
