AS First World War centenary commemorations sweep the nation, one Hampshire school has found its own way to mark the milestone.

Normal timetables were suspended at Stanmore Primary School, in Stanmore Lane, Winchester, to learn about different aspects of the conflict, and they have even built their own version of a trench.

Year 6 pupils explored life in the trenches, and Corporal Kyle Yates of Winchester Army Training Regiment helped them to build a defensive position.

Winchester City Council donated sandbags and they also used turf from the school site.
