Remembrance Day

10th November 2017

On Friday 10th November, we gathered together to observe two minutes silence to remember the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, marking the end of the First World War.

Throughout the week, Year 6 children sold poppies on the school playground to raise money for The Royal British Legion who provide lifelong support for the Armed Forces community - serving men and women, veterans, and their families.

The Venerable Philip Jones led collective worship on Thursday, thinking about how the poppy as a symbol of Remembrance was inspired by John McCrae's poem In Flanders Fields. Miss Cooper led assembly on Friday and we thought about Remembrance Sunday, a day for the nation to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.

The children enjoyed expressing Remembrance Day through art and prayer.
