We are extremely fortunate to be working with Paddleboat Theatre once again.
This year Paddleboat are working alongside the children towards a performance inspired by female journalist, Clare Hollingworth, OBE (10 October 1911 – 10 January 2017).
Clare Hollingworth was an English journalist and author. She was the first war correspondent to report the outbreak of World War II, described as "the scoop of the century". As a reporter for The Daily Telegraph in 1939, while travelling from Poland to Germany, she spotted and reported German forces massed on the Polish border; three days later she was the first to report the German invasion of Poland.
The Children are learning about some of the political and social history of World War II as well as the means of communication used to send messages during the fighting.
Our weekly workshops will culminate in a performance at the Pheonix Theatre in Exeter in March.
