Interviews

Spring Grove Junior School

We have also been working with Year 6 pupils at Spring Grove junior school  to find out what they think about war and peace.

They came up with questions they wanted to ask about - 'How would you describe peace?', 'Why are poppies so special?', 'Does peace matter?' - and then they asked each other some of these questions, in small groups. They gave very interesting and thoughtful replies, which are transcribed in these pages. We hope you will be able to hear them in due course, as well.

 These young people have also used their experience to write poems about the themes of war and peace. Visit the gallery to see the results.
