World War 1

20th March 2020

Year 7 have been looking at the work of World War I poet, Wilfred Owen. After designing their own propaganda posters, we read Owen’s work, ‘Dulce Et Decorum Est’ and compared the two images of war. We discovered that the true image was much more petrifying than the propaganda led people to believe. We then used the smoke machine in the theatre to try and reenact the poem, with Arthur as the poor soldier who could not fit his gas mask in time.
