Meet Edith Johnson, Mother of 5 and travel with her to London 1914 and discover how the First World War would change ordinary lives, forever.
During the workshop, the children will:
- Explore the reasons young men and woman were so keen to join up and support their country.
- Learn a song from the period and look at what purpose it may have served.
- Begin to investigate what life might have been like in the trenches.
With the use of a poem, a letter from Edith to her son fighting at the front, the children will dramatically create their own story.
