Learning through Drama

This morning year 4 listened to the broadcast made by Neville Chamberlain on September 3rd 1939 declaring war on Germany when they failed to leave Poland. We talked about how families would have felt, the thoughts going through their minds and how their lives would be affected. We then moved onto hearing the announcement about children being evacuated safely from London. Again we talk about how individuals in the family would be feeling. Finally we looked at the children leaving for the station, their body language and their thoughts. 

Year 4 approached the work sensibly and demonstrated a good understanding of how people reacted during this time.
