This Is Local London: Never forget: Children marked the moment appropriately Never forget: Children marked the moment appropriately

Primary school children marked the start of the centenary of World War I with an exhibition of art and poetry.

Year 6 children from St Osmund’s Primary School showed off their work at the OSO Arts Centre in Barnes.

The students were inspired when they studied the works of Wilfred Owen and other classic World War One poets.

Children also read and interpreted letters written from the front line back home to loved ones and reflected on horror young men experienced while in the trenches.
