War Memorials Trust was contacted by Henham and Ugley Primary School, Essex, early in 2014 because the school was keen for its pupils to know more about the war memorials in the village. The memorials and the people named on them had been researched and the information put onto the village’s website, and the visit involved the whole school working with the Trust’s Learning Officer in different ways to find out more about the memorial and those it commemorated.
As part of Northop Hall School’s ‘War and Peace’ topic, part of a local schools’ initiative to commemorate the centenary of the First World War, pupils were investigating their local war memorial and invited War Memorials Trust’s Learning Officer to the school to help them find out more about it.
Staff and pupils at Cavendish Community Primary School have been involved in Historic England’s Heritage Schools project (www.historicengland.org.uk/services-skills/education/heritage-schools) and as part of this learned about the First World War in the autumn term of 2014. The school has a war memorial on site which commemorates former pupils and part of this work included researching the names on this memorial.
