As part of their WW1 topic, Primary 6 have been focussing on the trenches and what it would have been like there.
We started off with a diary entry in writing. For this we watched first hand accounts from veterans describing their experiences. We then tried to get the feelings and emotions of these soldiers across in our writing.
This then lead us on to making charcoal silhouettes of the soldiers in the trenches. We used tracing paper to help us with the silhouettes and then charcoal to crest the trenches and the background.
Our final task of the week was a drama activity where we were the soldiers in the trenches. We created a drama scene and then there was hot seating where the rest of our class asked us about our experiences whilst in character.
