Year 6 Service of Remembrance
Linked to our World War II history topic, Year 6 have been writing war poems and making clay poppies. To mark the special occasion of Armistice Day, they led a service of Remembrance in our garden where they recited some of the poem they had written, explained the significance of the minute's silence and then performed 'In Flander's Field.' by John McCrae. The whole school watched, together with the Year 6 parents; we were all very impressed by their behaviour and performance. After the service, the children 'planted' their poppies temporarily at the front of the school.
