Archie Dobson's War
This unit is part of a topic on WW1 which is simultaneously studied in English. We begin in November to coincide with whole school Remembrance Day service. Through this lovely story, which is created by the BBC, the children explore the main events of WWI at home and abroad through Drama, Dance and Music. There are lots of opportunities to act out the different parts and experience the attitudes, efforts and struggles of Archie and his family members. The children also respond to the story through writing in role, such as diaries, letters and debates.
