Year 5 and 6 were treated to a fact filled performance by cast from The Horrible Histories. As the children sat down the simple props (a placard stating ‘On the brink of War’ and khaki trench coats) set the scene for a creative learning experience. This term’s topic is Britain at War and the show talked the children through the stages of World War I, informed them of all the countries involved and worked up to talk about the impact on numbers of people who were injured, killed or missing in action. Despite such challenging content, the cast delivered it in a way that made it accessible and engaging. Thank you to our friends at The Ministry of Fun for organising this performance.
