Synopsis

Bombs and Blackberries - A World War Two Play by Julia Donaldson

World War II has been declared and the Chiver's children are sent to the safety of the countryside. They are delighted to be brought back home when it looks like the Germans aren't going to invade after all. But the air-raid siren goes off and this time it's frighteningly real.This dramatic and often touching play brings Manchester during the Second War War and its people to life, and provides a variety of opportunities for KS2 classes to explore both historical and literacy topics in an involving and creative setting.

Reviews

dramatic and touching story * central her shopping * This touching play brings to life Manchester during the Second World War in a very accessible way for junior children. * Books for Keeps * Would make an excellent presentation as part of a study project on life in war time ... 8 to 11-year-olds should enjoy taking part ... gives the atmosphere of the period well. * School Librarian * A way of linking history with English which I really liked. * TES Teacher * perfect for class reading or performance * Primary Times *
