1914 - 2014 - 100 Year Centenary
Over the past few weeks we have all been remembering those who fought and died in the wars of the last 100 years. Our corridor displays show our thoughts and reflections, and look truly stunning.
This week all children had the opportunity to visit St Peter's Church to view the Remembrance Exhibition. Children were able to look at the exhibits and reflect on those who gave their lives to protect ours. We are particularly proud of our Year 6 children who produced a variety of creative memorial pieces that formed part of the display in church.
Many children watched a live broadcast from the Tower of London on Monday afternoon, and Year 6 also had a visitor from the War Graves Commission.
On Tuesday we held a Remembrance Day assembly at school, and thought in particular about the significance of the poppy as a symbol of remembrance.
The Year 6 children took part in a service at St Peter's, along with Year 6 children from other local schools. This included more opportunities to reflect, Mrs Carpenter's special poem and the traditional 2 minute silence.
Please come into school to see our corridor displays - the wreaths are made using a cut out hand of every child in the school.
