CHILDREN and staff at a junior school have discovered an inspirational way to mark the 100th anniversary of the First World War.

Pupils at Bidbury Junior School in Havant used their artistic skills to create an exhibition of their own Great War-themed artwork to raise money for Help for Heroes.

Buddy Scott, nine, said: ‘We put a lot of work and research into our artwork. When we finished it we were very pleased. The exhibition is a good way to show our art and raise money for Help for Heroes.’

The art ranged from poppies to moving drawings of soldiers.

Headteacher Helen Facer said: ‘The children have learnt a lot about the First World War during their research into the artwork and the results go to show how proud we can be of our children here at Bidbury.

‘They have indeed shown their respect and remembrance through these fabulous pieces.’
