Over the last ten weeks children from Kestrels class have been finding out what it was like to live through a war. To try to answer our philosophical question “Who are the real losers when we go to war” they researched the major events of the second world war and then interviewed six people from the village.
Each person came in to school and spent an hour with the children explaining details and stories from their own childhood. We took the most moving or interesting parts from each conversation and the children used these clips as the basis for some animations. We wanted to bring the stories to life and make sure they are not forgotten or lost. You can view the finished animation below. We hope you enjoy it.
