For Remembrance Day this year, the children in year 5/6 have spent the morning reflecting on the importance of Remembrance Day for them as children living within society today. They have looked at the history of Remembrance Day and specifically what life was like for children during the World Wars. They then spent the rest of the morning writing reflective sentences to thank the many soldiers for the sacrifices they made during both World Wars. The children have written poems, letters and sentences to pay their respects and think about what Remembrance day means to them. It has been lovely to see so many children come into school in their Guides and Scouts uniforms, and share what else they have been doing outside of school for Remembrance Day. At 10:45, as a whole school, we also took part in our Remembrance Day service, where the school councillors placed poppies in out reflective area that we created last year. It has been a really reflective morning and the children have produced some beautiful art work and pieces of writing, which they will be sticking into their best books.
