PUPILS at Layston School in Buntingford have been learning about war time life from the town's elderly folk.
The Year 2 youngsters invited their grandparents and other residents to the school this week so they could ask them questions about the Second World War.
Class teacher Mrs Annie Watkins said: "The Second World War has been one of our main topics this term, so we thought it would be good for the pupils to hear about it first hand.
"We have been spending time in class coming up with questions the children could ask, and I think things like this make the subject much more real for them."
John Simmons attended the event and spent time talking to the children.
He said: "It's been really interesting for me, as well as the pupils.
