Mercury Class at High Peak School, Cheshire have started work this term on a World War 2 project.
They had some very special visitors today to help them gain a real insight into life during the war.
Barbara accompanied by her dog Rupert came to meet with the class and share her stories and experiences of how it was as a child growing up in the war.
The class found this very interesting and really enjoyed hearing the stories. They especially liked having Rupert as part of the class for the day too - he was very well behaved!
