Remembrance Day Assembly

Last week we spent time in our classes learning about remembrance and making poppies in the memory of those affected by war. 

Today the whole school gathered together for a thoughtful assembly on Armistice Day, Monday 11th November.  Our Head Boy, Head Girl and Deputies assisted Mrs Yuen in leading an assembly that reminded us of the importance of remembering those who have suffered or died as a consequence of conflict.  We remembered those who gave their lives to ensure we can live in freedom and peace today. 

We learned about the origins of Remembrance Day, laying wreaths, the bugle playing the Last Post and about The Royal British Legion charity.  We also reflected on the inspiration behind John McCrae's poem 'In Flanders Fields' and the significance of the remembrance poppy.  

Our young leaders were supported by children from Year 5.  Using 4 candles they led the school in reflection:

  • a candle for remembrance - we remember
  • a candle for hope, hope for a better future for all
  • a candle for peace, we prayed for peace for our world
  • a candle to show we care in the Light of the Lord, we care for one another

After the assembly we left the School Hall in a silent procession and placed our class poppies on and around a cross at the front of the school.
