Over this week, we have taken time in school to talk about the importance of Remembrance Day. This has been particularly important this year with 2018 marking one hundred years since the end of the First World War.
On Monday, the children listened to an assembly which shared various aspects about this important time. There was also the chance for children in Key Stage 2 to consider some important numbers associated with the first and second World Wars; it was hard to imagine the number of people who died during these conflicts.
On Friday, children observed a minute silence where they were able to reflect on the sacrifices of all those who have been involved in the armed forces.
We hope the children have a greater understanding of Armistice Day and will spend time over the weekend thinking about how others have served so that we can live in peace.
