Remembrance Day November 2018

To mark the centenary of the end of the First World war, the children took part in a number of events leading up to Remembrance Day. Peter, a neighbour of the school and a war veteran, came to school to sell poppies as part of the Poppy Appeal and to explain how the Royal British Legion use the money raised from the sale of poppies each November to help those who have been injured in the various conflicts. The Year 2 children were given the responsibility of selling the poppies each day. 

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 children 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 Year 2 children also visited Gracewells Care Home to take part in a poppy themed workshop with their residents. 

On this very special centenary, the whole school also observed two minutes silence in memory of those who had been injured or killed in war.   

“For our Tomorrow, they gave their Today”
