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.
