Remembrance 2023

Today, pupils from across school participated in our annual remembrance assembly.

Pupils discussed remembrance and the difference between the images of war that were (and still are) used and why this makes remembering the terrible human cost so important.

Pupils were invited to lay wreaths and to join in singing and signing the song “one more light”.

Finally, the assembly was closed by a performance of The Last Post by our own Lois Talbot.

Classes had spent time this week on artwork linked to remembrance - creating pictures, paper plate poppies and poppy biscuits, linking in maths measure skills. Some had spent time outside making a wreath.

Older pupils as part of their history transition challenge module learned about the conditions in the trenches. We talked about emotions as we felt ice cold water, heavy bags of sand and listened to gunfire and bombs. They used this knowledge to then describe the trenches for their transition folders.
