First World War drama or literacy lesson Year 5/6/7 outstanding teacher World War I World War 1

This drama or literacy lesson enables children to explore themes and feelings relating to the First World War and trench warfare, and is ideal for Year 5, 6 or 7. It includes a learning objective, success criteria, video clip, lesson plan, scene cards for children to choose from and a suggestion for mini plenaries. I have not been observed teaching this particular lesson but all my recent literacy observations have been rated as outstanding.

It should spark off ideas that do not fit the norm. There are also dozens of ‘drama teacher block’ breaking ideas and 101+ ideas to start devising off.
