Armistice Day

The school council organised for Years1-6 to write on love hearts messages of remembrance, to those who fought in any war or family members who have been affected by different conflicts. They then created a giant poppy from these hearts, to lay at the cenotaph, for the anniversary of Armistice Day.

Throughout the school, classes took part in creating artwork, memorials, poetry and letters, to commemorate this amazing day.

On the Friday afternoon, the whole of KS2 took part in a live lesson, led by the BBC, which showed WW1 artefacts, clips of the soldiers, looked at Danny Boyle’s beach art memorial and led the children to create beautiful Haikus about men and women who were involved in WW1.
