Our Key Stage 2 children learnt more about Remembrance Day during a very moving recent school assembly. We started off by asking the pupils about what it is that we remember on this very special day. Many of the pupils were able to explain how the soldiers that lost their lives during World War One and World War Two are honoured and remembered.
Our assembly also then introduced the wider idea of thinking about more recent wars, as well as soldiers from all around the Commonwealth, and other countries, who have all died to try and defend their country.
We also found out more about the symbolism of the poppy, and how this first came about as being so close to our hearts during Remembrance Sunday. The assembly was concluded with a Year 5 pupil reading some somber Remembrance Day poetry. You can find out more about our assembly by listening to the podcast below.
