Remembrance and respect came to life on Tuesday as students from Riverside Primary School and Nursery took part in a First World War drama workshop.
The ‘Crew’ workshop offered year two students the chance to examine a wide range of artifacts and try on costumes. They discovered why the war started, what happened and what it might have been like at the time. Pupils listened to ‘The Last Post’ and learnt about showing respect in the run up to Armistice Day.
Headteacher Nick Davies said: “The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were brilliantly behaved. Our visitor even came to see me to compliment the school on the positive atmosphere and excellent conduct of the children.”
