A FIRST

Accrington Observer - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

World War project has been held at Ben­jamin Har­g­reaves CE pri­mary school in Ac­cring­ton.

Each class spent the week com­plet­ing work based around the war and pro­duced pieces of writ­ing, art, crafts and a poppy cre­ation.

Emma Barker, from the school, said: “The chil­dren loved learn­ing about the war and par­ents said they had also gone home want­ing to find out more.

“Some chil­dren even brought in arte­facts from great-great­grand­par­ents such as war pa­pers and medals.

“At the end of the week, each class put to­gether a dis­play in St Paul’s Church across the road and we had an open af­ter­noon for par­ents and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity. The dis­plays are go­ing to stay up for Re­mem­brance Sun­day.”
