August the 4th 2014 was the Centenary of the start of World War I.

Killamarsh Heritage Society have been working with the three schools and also with Killamarsh cubs on work relating to this event.
As part of our work with them the children produced artwork and written work which was exhibited in the Methodist Church in Killamarsh during July and up to the 4th of August.
The work was wonderful and the children should be really proud of themselves
In addition to the artwork, the children of Class 4/5 W at Killamarsh Junior School gave us poems relating to the soldiers in World War I and also wrote notebooks about the War.  Class 5 at Killamarsh Junior School produced a diary written from the perspective of a soldier who fought in the war.  Everyone who read the children’s work was really moved by it.

The children in the schools came in to see the exhibition as did many members of the public.  Those who came to see the exhibition were really impressed with the standard of work produced by the children of the village.

Below are some photographs showing the exhibition:
