Children across Sheffield will be transported back in time to the end of World War One as part of a commemorative project in schools.

Primary school pupils will relive the last 100 days of the war through the eyes of an imaginary family as part of the six-week project.

Armistice 100 aims to transport children back in time, give deeper meaning to the events and relate them directly to people, places and experiences of that time.

They will experience everyday life for young people including their food, clothing, school and games - and how they coped with the effects of war. 

The Star has teamed up with The News Foundation as part of the project to create a package of materials that will bring 1918 to life through the pages of the local newspaper.
