Armistice Day: 11th November 2015

Today is a very important day and to commemorate Armistice Day, we held a special assembly giving everyone a chance to 'remember'.

During the assembly, we listened to the cannons fire in the town and fell silent to think about, pay respect and honour those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom today.

The children were asked to think about the significance of the poppy and why we wear them at this time of the year. We also watched a short video made by The Royal British Legion to show the children how all of the money raised by the Poppy Appeal is spent, supporting ex-servicemen and woman and families affected by war.

Our assembly today, like last year, was calm, peaceful and full of thought. Afterwards, the children were given time to reflect, ask questions and discuss Remembrance Day in their classroom with their teacher.

Thank you to everyone who donated some money towards the Poppy Appeal. Lest we forget.
