Read, Write and PERFORM!

The Y3 Christmas evacuees travelled to The Word to perform their WW2 writing projects. In the Green Room studio, they spoke with expression and emotion to bring their writing alive. Children performed their evacuation day recounts, persuasive letter home and a diary entry for the Dunkirk rescue. Others took part in interviews in the roles of different characters.

Meanwhile children brought their own version of Winston Churchill’s historic, ‘We’ll fight them on the beaches…” speech alive using images, and music with iPads in the iMovie app.

In true festive spirit, the children produced a Christmas video of their ‘street dancing’ in the Green Room to conclude a fabulous creative day. Happy Christmas!
