Remembrance Day

To mark Remembrance Day, Beech class have been learning the poem 'In Flanders Fields' by John McCrae. We learned the poem by heart, so that we could have a class performance. The pupils have reflected so thoughtfully on what each line means in the poem and have shown such lovely respect for why it is so important to never forget the millions of soldiers who went off to war and never returned. We also discussed about remembering soldiers who are still fighting in conflicts today all over the world. It was also fascinating to hear about the children's relatives, who have fought in different wars. Thank you for taking the time to share their stories and photos with us.

We have been learning about the significance of the poppy. We have also thought about what would be in a soldiers picket, we then wrote a poem about it.
