Members from the Havering Museum and the British Legion visited pupils at Crownfield Junior School in White Hart Lane to talk to them about the First World War.

The students then showcased the cross-curricular work they had been doing around Remembrance Sunday on Friday, November 9 with a special visit from the deputy mayor of Havering, councillor Michael Deon Burton.

Gill Horne, headteacher at the school, said: “We thought it was important that parents and children could work together. Independent learning was a big part of it too.

“The children have been very reflective. They’ve seen poppies before but they haven’t looked at this topic to this extent before - to actually consider what would it have been like if the war happened in this day and age.”
