Remembrance Day November 2020
During the month of November, the children learned about the importance of Remembrance Day at a national and local level. To mark this important event, we created a poppy garden in the village which was greatly admired and appreciated by members of the village. We sold poppies to support the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and explained how the Royal British Legion use the money raised from the sale of poppies to help those who have been injured in the various conflicts.
In their history lessons and through assemblies, the children learned about why we commemorate Remembrance Day and found out about conditions in the trenches in World War One. The Year 2 children also learned about the twelve Maids Moreton men who lost their lives in World War One and commemorated their lives through art work and written work.
The whole school also observed two minutes silence in memory of those who had been injured or killed in war. The Year 2 class bubble visited the Poppy Garden at 11am on 11th November to carry out their remembrance.
