Remembrance Day November 2017

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 the Year 2 children wrote letters as if they were soldiers in the trenches in World War One.

Every child in the school painted a stone using red and black paint. We gathered all the stones together to create a giant poppy in the school reflective garden and held a special service where we listened to some famous poems about poppies and the First World War. During this service, the whole school observed two minutes silence in memory of those who had been injured or killed in war.   

“For our Tomorrow, they gave their Today”
