Haddenham St Mary's School has been discussing WW1 in recent days and, although a very difficult topic to cover with children of infant school age, the theme concluded with a school assembly focusing on some of the messages and insights that the children had gleaned.
Several youngsters had the courage to describe some of their key learning points to the audience of parents and carers, a task made all the more challenging given that they used a microphone and that their young voices were amplified significantly through the pa system — enough to intimidate even the most confident of adults!
The assembly also included a number of songs that were particularly associated with the Great War.
The children did a wonderful job!
Lots more photographs are displayed in our GALLERIES.

Children enjoyed their first focus week this week.
On Wednesday Mr Fulton, Isaac and Rosa's granddad came in to school armed with helmets, officer's caps, and many other fascinating items pertinent to World War 1. The children had great fun guessing the use of each item and trying on some of the head wear the soldiers would have worn at the time. A huge thank you to Mr Fulton for teaching the children so much about World War 1 alongside Mrs Smith (Isaac and Rosa's Mummy) for being such a good assistant, the children and staff learned lots.
The children in Year 1 and Year 2 have also been busy creating their very own inspired poppies in the style of those currently on display at the Tower of London.
