Assembly/ play about conscientious objectors in WW1 suitable for upper KS2

Assembly/ play about conscientious objectors in WW1 suitable for upper KS2

We performed this short (15-20 minute) play to parents and the whole school as a 'celebration assembly' to show our learning about WW1. There are parts for a whole class of varying lengths. The powerpoint was shown while parents were coming in and during the performance. The pupils wrote speeches in role as conscientious objectors, some of which were incorporated into the play, (one could substitute your own pupils' speeches.) The play also raises many SMSC /philosophical questions using the WW1 context.
