Year 6 pupils at Monkfield Park Primary School in Cambourne created an impressive museum to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

The children, who been exploring the theme of remembrance, brought in items from home, created artwork and written pieces, and made striking displays that were shown to pupils and parents on Monday.

Year 6 teacher Nikki Simpson said: “They shared it with parents and children as a way to demonstrate that those who have lost their lives in war will continue to be remembered.”

Stones with painted poppies will be hidden across Cambourne during next week for people to find and rehide.
