We held a ceremony in school to remember the Armistice. Our pupils were so respectful as they stood in silence to remember the fallen soldiers. We thought about how we honour those who have sacrificed their lives. We looked at the experience of one family from our school with generations of service to our nation.
Our pupils paid tribute to the fallen as we held a special assembly in school. Mr Outterside told us about the people who had sacrificed their lives as we held a silence to the Last Post. We read poems by Wilfrid Owen and year 6 acted out his famous poem: Dulce et Decorum Est. We also considered reconciliation and events like the Christmas Truce that have become familiar as the years have passed since 1918. Mrs Anderson led us in a song about the Great War that seemed to beautifully reflect our thoughts on this important day.
Our 'Bible Explorer' tells us all the stories from the Old Testament.
We conducted a ceremony with year 6 to commemorate the fallen of all wars. We highlighted those brave seamen of the Great War who were buried at sea. Our wreath floated down the Thames after some the Last Post.
