Event - Remembrance

11 November 2020

102 years since the end of the First World War. At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, the guns fell silent on the Western Front to bring an end to the fighting.

Remembrance honours those who served to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life. We unite across faiths, cultures and backgrounds to remember the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth.

At 11am today, we held a two-minute silence to pay our respects to the people who have died in war. During the day, each class undertook different Remembrance activities; take a look at some of our work below.

For your tomorrow, we gave our today.

Children in nursery made tasty poppy cookies.
We also held a thoughtful prayer service.

Children in Reception class created poppy art.
We used different materials in our artwork.

In Year 2, we asked each other questions regarding Armistice Day.
In addition, we read a selection of poems about Remembrance.

Year 3 pupils each made a paper poppy wreath.
We place the wreaths on our class prayer table.

Year 4 held a Remembrance assembly.
Next, we wrote prayers for those who lost their lives.

Children in Year 5 studied close ups of poppy flowers and used oil pastels to draw just one quarter of a poppy.
Four quarters were then placed together to make a piece of abstract poppy art.
