Year 9 students will be going to the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry to watch a production of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. Currently our year 9 students are studying the Holocaust and this will support what the students have been learning in their History lessons. The production is based on the best-selling novel by John Boyne and tells the tale of an unlikely friendship between two innocent boys. Set during World War II, the story is seen through the innocent eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a concentration camp, whose forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy on the other side of the camp fence has startling and devastating consequences.
