Mrs Lloyd, Mrs Booth and Year 6 have been working hard to create this cross curricular play for voices. The Autumn term topic of World War One has provided opportunities for pupils to develop their expressive skills of drama, music and creativity. Pupils have performed the play, added visual and audio effects using garage band and edited the play using imovie.
