Dunkeswell War Stories is an interactive website developed in conjunction with staff and Key Stage 2 pupils at Broadhembury Primary School, close to Dunkeswell airfield in East Devon. Children can discover a collection of short films featuring twenty-six local people and four American veterans, combined with animation, photographs, music and 1940s-inspired artwork. There is a teacher’s area including printable resources and lesson plans for a six-week programme of learning about both film-making and the Second World War. It suggests how to knit the digital resource in with hands-on activities such as cooking on a ration.
