School broke up today for the holidays. Hurray! I am looking forward to some lie ins.
I got back from Newcastle on Tuesday . It was great fun and the part I played in this new CBBC Drama was quite a challenge. Here is a write up from the BBC website and below is a picture of me and some new mates in Newcastle.
Hattie’s Army is a gripping new three-part CBBC drama series, set during World War One and following a group of children in a small English town as they hold the Home Front and discover the true enemy within.
Fourteen-year-old Hattie is a girl who doesn’t fit in, and when she’s kicked out of the Girl Guides for getting involved in a fight, her father doesn’t know what to do with her. As war breaks out and the efforts of the Scouts and Guides are volunteered in support of the war, Harriet feels sidelined and forms her own ‘army’ of misfits, mounting their own patrols and searching for German spies.
Hattie’s Army highlights the astonishing and genuinely important role played by the children and young people who were left behind when their fathers and brothers went to fight in the trenches.
