Pupils have been fascinated to learn about each other’s relatives and their involvement in World War Two.
Last week, one pupil brought in some very precious artefacts belonging to his family, including photos, medals and a mention in despatches. His Great Grandad served in the RAF during WW2.
Thank you for emailing in your family photos and press clippings too – it has really helped the children to understand the human stories within the war.
We found out about one Great Grandad who joined the RAF when he was 19 and during the war was mainly stationed in America training other pilots, as well as another Great Grandad who served in the Navy and helped to liberate Australian prisoners of war.
