Remembrance Assembly, November 2012

Mr Poole came to talk to the children about Remembrance Day.  The assembly began by discussing what the poppy symbolizes, World Wars I and II and the modern conflicts that the children are familiar with from images on the television and in newspapers.  Afterwards the children wrote the names of people who had died in World Wars I and II, and lived in the village, on labels which were tied onto wooden crosses.  Mr Pooole helped to made this even more poignant and relevant to the children by explaining that the school precedes the wars so all of those people that the children wrote crosses for would have attended our school. The crosses will be placed in the war memorial for villagers to enjoy reading the thoughtful comments the children wrote. What a special way to remember those people who gave their lives for us.
