Creativity Day: Explore the First World War using radio and writing

Posted on 13/02/2014

This March, we are hosting our regular R:Fest Creativity Day at Royal Holloway as part of the annual Runnymede Literary Festival. Focusing on the centenary of the First World War, this year's exciting hands-on event gives pupils the opportunity to get creative and see English in a new light, presenting them with different interpretations of, and reactions to, the conflict.

The day includes two workshops that bring the events of the war to life, led by students of Royal Holloway's top-rated creative courses. Using diaries, magazines, and visual records, pupils will consider the different areas of life on which the the conflict impacted.

The afternoon session is a really exciting opportunity for your pupils to 'report' the news of the Great War, with the Education Team from award-winning radio station, Eagle FM. They will use professional journalism training techniques to get pupils broadcasting ‘live from the trenches’; providing practical experience of scripting and recording original news reports.

Most suitable for Key Stage 3-4 / Years 8, 9 and 10. Subject specialism: English 

Wednesday 26 March, 9.30am-3pm
