Lest we forget
On the run up to Armistice Day, we focused on one of our Link Priorities – Emotional Development and Theory of Mind – being able to know and understand situations from the perspective of others. We discussed kindness and appreciating what others do for us. Pupils had the opportunity to take part in a range of lovely remembrance activities.
Beech Class recreated a Flander’s Field display in the atrium, which has been admired by local residents.
Hazel Class discussed the origins of the poppy and the poem ‘Flander’s Field’. They too recreated their own version of the barren battlefield, where for a long time only poppies grew.
During circle time in Maple Class, each child was given a paper poppy with folded petals and they sang a rhyme about poppies; they then each put their poppy in water and sang again about poppies and peace, the paper absorbed the water and the folded poppy petals opened up.
Pine Class made their own poppies which they wore with pride.
Everyone had the opportunity to place their poppy on a display as a mark of respect.
Thank you for your donations towards our Poppy Appeal. We have raised £65.23 which will be sent to The Royal British Legion to help support our Armed Forces, both past and present.
