The Year 6 pupils have started this term by studying the story of Rose Blanche by Ian McEwan. The pupils have already written some imaginative, descriptive and emotive ideas relating to the story and are currently in the process of writing their own ‘Chance to Shine’ from the perspective of Rose herself.
This story is told through the eyes of a young German girl, Rose Blanche, who is a witness to the immense changes occurring in Nazi Germany. Her curiosity leads her outside her town where she discovers a concentration camp. Rose Blanche secretly brings food to the children behind the barbed-wire fence.
