WW1 Centenary 2018

We have been looking at World War 1 with a focus on thanking all of the people and animals who served our country. Across the school all pupils have taken part in a range of activities to give them a deeper understanding of what happened both during and after the war as well as the impact on all people (men, women, children and animals). 

We Will Remember Them 

To bring our week to a close each pupil painted a rock to create a school poppy in memory of all of the servicemen in WW1.

 'Lest We Forget' performed by the Footlights Theatre Company

Poetry prize awarded after KS2 took part in a national competition

 

Well done to Lily Morris in Year 6! Lily entered a Remembrance Poetry competition along with thousands of other children. Lily's amazing poem came in third place! You can view her poem on the Royal British Legion's website.
