About the Project


The children learning about the Second World WarScreen Archive South East worked in partnership with children from Whitehawk Primary School to explore the relevance and history of the Second World War. Using film archive material and through working with local 'home front veterans', the children learned about the war and created drawings, writing, dramas and films about life at Whitehawk Primary School during the war.


The children learning about the Second World WarEvents were run over the course of four days at the School where the children engaged in a number of learning activities. The many outputs from these activities can be seen on this site. Including touring the school's World War Two shelter, watching and creating commentaries for archive film, interviewing 'Home Front Veterans', performing a drama, creating art work, writing articles, letters and poetry.
