Remembrance Assembly



We held our annual Remembrance Assembly on Friday 11th November.  Children, staff, parents, governors and military personnel came together to remember the fallen from past and present conflict.  A group of children then laid a cross of remembrance on the grave of Private William Horn, killed on the 17th October 1916, who lays at rest in the cemetery next to the school.

Lottie Year 6:
"This year's theme is 'Rethink Remembrance', which means that even though we will never, and should never, forget the heroes who fought for our country back then, we need to remember that brave mem and women are dying for our country today. We need to carry that thought when we put on a poppy."

Daisy Year 6:
"Armistice Day, on November 11th, commemorates the signing of the armistice between the Allies and Germany at 11am, on November 11th 1918.
As as result, there is a 2 minute silence held to mark the occasion - on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month - and remember those killed during the two World Wars and the 12,000 british servicemen and women killed or injured since 1945."

Maddie Year 6:
"Today there are British troops serving in more than 80 countries. They protect Britain and other countries. They also act as peacekeepers and bring aid to those in need."

Luca Year 6:
"British men and women are putting their lives at risk. They may be killed or wounded. Some return home with horrific injuries."
