Poppies and the barbed wire of No Man’s Land spring out of these evocative silk paintings produced by children.
Pupils at Highlands Primary School, in Highlands Gardens, Ilford, have made the creations as part of their studies into the First World War.
The artwork was produced by Year Five students, while clay and wire model trenches were designed by Year Six students.
The youngsters have also made colourful posters portraying how they see the war.
Deputy headteacher Jean Durr said: “The whole school has had a focus on teaching about aspects of the centenary and the First World War this term.

“We believe it is important for the children to understand the global issues and the significant effect on the world we know today.”
