West Norfolk youngsters share First World War knowledge after school project
Pupils at St Germans Academy impressed members of the King’s Lynn branch of Royal British Legion (RBL) last week with their knowledge of First World War.
Year 5 and 6 students in Ladybirds Class showed standard bearer Robert Hipkin and chairman Gerry Tann the work they have been doing in the run-up to the centenary of the end of the Great War, including their own ‘trench’.
Mr Hipkin said: “The school showed us the project they are doing, they have been doing research on the First World War, including life in the trenches.”
The pair also gave a talk to pupils, made poppy wreaths with them and showed them the RBL’s standard during their visit last Friday.
Mr Hipkin said: “The children did so well, their knowledge of the Great War was nice to see. It was very good to hear their views.”
He added: “They put a lot of hard work and effort into their project, it really stood out.”
