Pupils at William Law Primary School experienced World War Two first hand at a grand tea party, where they heard stories of the war from those who were there.

The party was attended by the pupils’ great grandparents and grandparents, a number of Werrington residents and residents from the local care homes.

“It was a lovely afternoon,” said Year 6 teacher and event organiser, Alison Harrison. ‘More than 85 guests attended, including residents from Sutton Court, Cherry Blossom and Sweet Briar care homes. The children showed impeccable manners as they asked questions and listened with genuine interest to real life events. They were also shown ration books and gas masks.

“The tea party was very much enjoyed by all.”
