The children worked on a drama about aspects of life for children in Whitehawk during the Second World War, including air raids and evacuation.

The children then put on a 'Show' for family members and the Home Front Veterans. See video highlights of the show.

The children wrote poems and letters about life on the home-front in the second world war. Many of them wrote about what it would have been like to have been in the air raid shelter at the school during a bomb attack.
