Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918

Tomorrow , we will hold a minute’s silence in school at 11am.

The Year 5/6 children have been selling poppies all week.

One of our pupils also wanted to share this with other children in his class. He visited his grandparents in the school holidays and while he was there he was talking to his grandfather about his military service medals.

The photograph below shows Theo holding up his great grandpa John’s medals from WW2.  Displayed on the tray on his lap are four medals which were his great grandma Helen’s medals from WW2.  The three medals on the left-hand side of the tray were given for military service in WW1 to his great great grandpa Jack.  Theo’s great grandma Helen was in the women’s army service based in Cyprus; whilst both John and his father Jack were in the British Army.
