The centenary of the First World War was commemorated with a day of activities at Newlands Girls' School.
Pupils in years seven, eight and nine created pockets books containing essential translations for British soldiers in France, used their mathematical skills to break codes, drill marched to music and looked at the psychological pressures of the Great War.
The staff in Farm Road also got on board by role playing key figures to be questioned about their influence in the war and each house created a poster to form a remembrance display for the anniversary.
