Their other work includes the study of original artefacts and the use of a computer program which allows them to explore a virtual trench, drawing maps and writing descriptions.

The whole school has been involved in the painting of wooden poppies.

This was organised by the Royal British Legion and many other schools in the area have been involved in the activity.

Poppies containing personal messages from the children have been put up around the town.

The school will have a remembrance assembly today, when poems, prayers and other prose will be shared.
