The Rose Garden was recently transformed into wartime Britain as the Year 4s delivered their outdoor production of Bombs and Blackberries. Set during World War II, the play told the story of the Chivers, a happy family who find themselves suddenly separated when their children are sent to the countryside in search of safety.

The bittersweet tale, which was bought to life by Head of Drama, Lisa Kierle, featured ingenious props and costumes, including cardboard gas masks and suitcases, as well as authentic sounds, music and dance.

The Year 4 children had a lot of fun preparing for their roles, launching themselves into every aspect of rehearsals with such energy. The group acted with true professionalism, sang with gusto, and the icing on the dance, dance the jitterbug with such joy.

Commenting, Lisa said: “It was almost a touring production, as due to the weather the children had to rehearse in three different venues – the Arts Centre, the Sports Hall, and the Rose Garden!”.

She added: “The final performance, though, was an absolute treat on a sunny Friday afternoon, and was the best way to conclude our celebrations.”
