As part of our events to commemorate the anniversary of hundred years since the signing of the Armistice in November 1918, pupils have undertaken a project entitled '#Water Street Remembers'. This has involved children decorating a large stone or pebble with a picture of a poppy and on the back of the stone they have written the name and dates of a local Skipton man who had killed in the Great War. Pupils then laid these stones around Skipton for members of the public to find ...
Working alongside the Craven Museum pupils researched soldiers who have left Skipton between 1914 and 1918 never to return. The children found many family connections and also addresses and houses that were known to them.
The whole event proved very poignant.
