TOWN JUNIOR PUPILS STEP BACK IN TIME TO WAR YEARS

Pupils at Town Junior School learned how to ‘keep calm and carry on’ when they stepped back in time to World War Two for an educational production.

Treachery at Traitor’s Quay told the story of young evacuees uncovering a fiendish German plot in a quiet seaside town.

Around 60 pupils from Year Six at the Ebrook Road school took part in the show, which wowed parents and governors on Friday, July 13.

Eleven-year-olds Ella Jennings, Jenna Morley, Imogen Meade, Poppy Kitchen and Eva Halliwell (10) as land girls.

Deputy head Julie Gilmour said preparations for the show – which began at the end of June – had been a ‘mammoth’ undertaking.

“It’s been a great experience as it’s taught drama, literacy and history too, because they’ve learned from the play,” she said.

“The staff across the school have worked tirelessly behind the scenes, painting backdrops, making costumes and creating props. It’s been a great team effort and we are really proud of the children.”

Year Six Teacher Melissa Rodgers added: “We have studied World War Two as part of our Year Six writing, so it was really amazing for the children to see it in action. It’s enriched their understanding of that period in history.”
