We have been taking part in Now the Last Poppy has Fallen, a project investigating stories of Essex people and places during the First World War, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
As part of our involvement in the project, we have worked with year 8 students at Shenfield High School to create this short reflective film on the wartime experiences of Sister Kate Luard, who we have mentioned a couple of times on this blog before (here and here).
The students joined us for a day to see Kate’s original letters and papers, and to work with filmmaker Chris Church to tell part of her story.
We will shortly be launching a resource pack using several of our First World War sources for secondary schools; if you would like to register your interest in this please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
We had a great day making the film, and we hope you enjoy watching it. See below for some behind-the-scenes photos of the filming process.
