Lest We Forget…

Today, Year 4 took part in a whole school act of remembrance which was proceeded by a whole school art activity.

Each class was given a silhouette of a soldier which they were asked to decorate around the theme of remembrance. This activity focussed all our minds on who we were remembering and why it is important to remember them – helping us to think of those who gave their lives in order that we may live ours and those who continue to serve to keep us and our country safe.

At 11am, children from Nursery to Reception and our entire staffing body came together at the front of school close to our Garden of Remembrance as we were lead in our act of remembrance by Year 6. We all observed a two minutes silence and heard poems by John McCrae as well as other important information and historical facts about the significance of the poppies we were wearing. Our service concluded with prayers lead by Mat Rowley from St. Marks Church, Layton.
