WORLD WAR I SHOW

Book our World War I show to find out just how much the world was affected by this war. We use verbatim accounts to retell the war using two characters. Find out about life on the battlefields and the trench conditions that beset the soldiers. We take you to the battlefield as they put their weapons aside to celebrate Christmas.

Whist this is happened, we will show you the life of the people left behind. The mothers, wives and families of the men who went away to serve their country. Through the eyes of Mabel, your students will learn all about the role of the munition worker, or ‘canary girls’ as they were commonly known.

Our show provides you with a poignant and realistic look at the war effort, and the sacrifices made by all those involved.

WORLD WAR I WORKSHOP

Following the show there will be workshop with our two facilitators. This can be split into two or several sessions depending on how many children are taking part in the day. We can offer the following activities:

DRAMA SESSION – Exploring themes seen in the show
CRAFT ACTIVITY – How to make war medals (We will supply the materials)
SHORT FILM – Using a school iPad we can film for you a short montage of clips to bring WWI to life from the children’s perspective
FREE PRINTABLE WORKBOOKS – Designed to be used before during or after our visit*
Opportunities to ask Questions
Big Quiz

*If we are working with 60 children or less, the workbooks will not be required during our visit. You are free to use these at any point in your topic. We try to design as many of our materials as possible to be used as standalone resources.
