During the spring term of 2016, teacher Nick Longford and the Year 5 children from Waterville Primary School, North Shields, investigated the First World War at Sea and the Battle of Jutland.

Supported by a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, they researched those killed in the conflict and buried in Preston Cemetery, Tynemouth.

They were fascinated to find that their local area had been in the front line of naval warfare.
