The Take Away Theatre Company really brought history to life during their performance of ‘During the War’ on Tuesday 6th October. The performance followed the life of eleven year old Jenny Hobbs as war broke out in 1939. Children were absorbed throughout as they found out about the home front, the Blitz, black outs, evacuation, rationing and V.E. Day. All of our KS1 and Ks2 children enjoyed the show and we must thank FOSS for funding this special presentation. The show certainly enhanced the current Year 6 project on World War II but also gave great insight into the reality of life in Britain during the second world war. It was fitting that this presentation came at a time where we are reflecting upon the 70th anniversary of the Blitz and the bravery of those who gave up their lives during the war.
