With the centenary of the end of WW1 celebrated at the weekend school pupils in Exmouth got into character to try and understand the conflict.

All of Littleham C of E Primary School’s pupils discussed the war last week, inspiring lots of discussion, art work and writing.

The week ended with a WW1 themed collective worship with many of the children and staff dressed in period costume and a celebration tea in the afternoon.

Head of Learning, Sarah Padbury, said she couldn’t be more proud of the children as they ‘really put into practice the value they are focusing on this half term, that being compassion’.

“Children once again exceeded our expectations as they showed a thirst for knowledge and a love of history,” said Sarah.

“Importantly the older children in particular also could see that from dark times and adversity incredible individuals emerge to take their place in history and offer hope for the future.”
