BARROW pupils looked back in time to learn about the First World War to tie in with the 100th anniversary of its outbreak.
Youngsters from Greengate Junior School and Ramsden Infant School in Barrow joined staff and parents to dress up in 1914-themed outfits at the Greengate Street school.
The event was a culmination of a six-week history programme to educate the children about the war.
Sue Jackson, headteacher of Greengate Junior School, said the event aimed to commemorate those who lost their lives in the conflict.
“It has been a project undertaken by the whole school, everyone’s been involved and we’ve been really well supported by the community and parents,” she said.
“It tied in with the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War but we also used it as an opportunity to educate the children about other wars and the impact they have had on people’s lives.
“We were really impressed with the response we had from the children.”
