Year 6 Remembrance Week

Year 6 have had an extremely busy but fun week learning about, and commemorating, Remembrance. Quantum Theatre visited on Tuesday, performing 'Your Country Needs You!’ which was a great show and deepened the children’s knowledge and understanding of the events of WWI.

Colin Doyle from the British Legion also visited, giving a fascinating and insightful talk on life in the trenches; what soldiers do when and if they return from war; why we commemorate Remembrance; and who we are remembering. Additionally, the children discussed the importance of the poppy and Remembrance services.


On Thursday morning, Year 6 travelled up to the church for a Remembrance service where the children read out some of the fantastic war poetry they had written.  They also laid the stunning wreaths created in their art lessons with Mrs Lee, which will remain on display over the weekend for the church’s Remembrance services.
