Commemorating the 80th Anniversary of D-Day

Today, as many people in the world were commemorating the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings that led to the end of World War II, Newfield wanted to mark the occasion by commemorating in some way that was meaningful to children in individual classes.

We all feel that it is very relevant to our RRSA status in that all children (and indeed all adults) have a right to enjoy the freedoms that were so fought for by so many, so bravely all those years ago…

Here are a few of the things classes did.

Class 7 watched a video on the 80th anniversary of D-Day. All were very silent whilst watching and listened well - Michael like watching the planes on the screen.

In S4 they listened to some wartime songs and chose from different materials to make their own ‘war’ medals.

In E5 our younger explorers celebrated D Day by enjoying Neapolitan ice cream to demonstrate how the allied forces came together which included naval, air and land forces. The different flavours of the ice cream mixed together stand for the allied forces coming together to support the war.

We hope that everyone has taken time to be grateful and to think about how lucky we all are to enjoy the freedom we have today.
