Project Description

Meet Ita Ekpenyon a Nigerian teacher and actor and the only known black WW2 Air Raid warden in the United Kingdom.

During this workshop, the children will:

  • Create images of life during WW2
  • Understand the need for rationing at the time
  • Learn a popular song to rally the troops and keep spirit’s high
  • Discuss diversity during the war
  • Perform a poem written by Oku, Ita’s daughter
Drama Hut have worked with our school on many occasions. Each time, the workshops have been well planned out- with teachers ideas in mind, well executed by very enthusiastic practitioners and have been thoroughly enjoyed by all children! Each workshop has engaged the children enormously, using original ideas that involve the children through practical games and activities. I would recommend this drama company to all schools.
