Trenches Literacy Lesson Bundle

This lesson plan follows on from the Prime VR workshop ‘Trenches’ but can be used as a standalone Literacy lesson about letter writing.

Pupils will learn about letters sent from the front line during WWI and about censorship during the war. They will then have the chance to read a high-quality ‘letter from the frontline’ which is specifically designed to match the writing expectations for Key Stage 2. Your class can then search for the features of the letter using the writing checklists which are differentiated for LKS2 and UKS2.

They can then attempt to write their letter as a soldier from the frontline using their notes from the model text and their writing checklist to ensure they have included the correct features to meet age related expectations for this text type.

What is included?

  • A model letter from the front line
  • A comprehensive lesson plan
  • Information text writing checklists for LKS2 and UKS2

Curriculum links and topics:

  • WWI
  • Life in the Trenches
