We have not been able to come together this year to celebrate Remembrance Day and in some respects, for this reason, it has been more poignantly felt across our school community.
On November 11th, Scarlett and Jake honourably laid our school wreath at the War Memorial. Together, and on behalf of the school, they paid their respects.
As part of our commemoration of Remembrance Day, two of our Year Five children, Cairo and Scarlett, performed the poem, Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye. The children recorded it outside earlier this week amidst the stillness, wind and birdsong. We have gathered a collection of learning from our Enquiry ‘Home is Where the Heart is’ to accompany their pure and simple words.
Across the school, we have all remembered. The story of Where Do the Poppies Now Grow by Hilary Robinson and Martin Impey was beautifully read digitally by Mrs Cox. Each class then stood and held their silence together.
