Children at a Clevedon school came together to remember the sacrifices made by residents to mark Remembrance Day.

Year 5 and 6 pupils at St John the Evangelist Church School learnt about World War 2 and the impact it had on the seaside town this term.

They visited the town's seafront sketching the pier and esplanade as part of studying local artist Doris Hatt.

They also honed their watercolour blending skills to create their own Hatt-style paintings.

Year 6 student Lydia detailed their activities, saying: "As part of our learning about the war, we researched some of the people from Clevedon who lost their lives during the war.

"In groups, we chose an individual to research and then created a sheet about them."

They extended their studies by visiting St Andrews Church to see the war graves of those they had researched.

Lydia added: "We also visited St Andrews Church where we found the war graves of the people that we had researched, looked at the memorial inside the church and said a short prayer of remembrance."

The students were lucky to meet a family member of a fallen wartime resident, furthering their connection to the past.

Their research did not stay in the classroom.

Lydia noted: "We wanted to present the work that we did on the people from Clevedon who lost their lives as well as some of the remembrance prayers that we wrote to St Andrew's Church to demonstrate that these people and the sacrifices that they made are still remembered today."

The research was presented to Vicar Trevor Cranfield at St Andrew's Church.
