On the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, pupils and staff at our schools observed a two minute silence for Armistice Day. This day marks the end of World War I and we remember the servicemen and women who have fought in all wars and those who sadly lost their lives.
The children created some wonderful poppies which are displayed around both of our schools. The poppy is used as a symbol of remembrance as they were found growing on the battlefields after World War I had ended. This is described in the famous poem In Flanders Fields.
Our Year 2 bubble at Lorraine and our Year 1 bubble at Pine Ridge were very excited to show us their beautiful poppies, displaying them outside in the playground!
