War, intrigue and treachery are not what you would normally expect from the pupils of Carleton Rode Primary School.

But the school's end-of-year production of Treachery at Traitors' Quay saw them transported back to the 1940s.

The play tells the tale of wartime children evacuated to Traitor's Quay, where they are confronted by an array of intriguing characters.

And there is a spy in their midst, forcing the evacuees to try to discover who the treacherous culprit is.

"The pupils were brilliant and really pulled the production together," said teacher Laura Sparkes.

"We put on a play every other year at the school and this one was inspired by our study of the Second World War.

"The pupils pulled it off and performing on stage has really built their confidence.

"Parents have also been really supportive and helped provide costumes."

Headteacher Judith Jones said: "I was very impressed how the children worked as a team and how much they enjoyed it."
