On Remembrance Day this week Year 6 held an assembly about this special day. We had thought carefully about all the different soldiers who had given their lives and this inspired us to write some poetry. We had also read poetry from World War 1 and this helped to inspire us too. For our poems we chose different points of view (for example the view of a wife of a soldier). A few of us shared our poems and we also presented information about why we have this ceremony on this special day.
Each class created a wreath and we all watched as they were laid together in the assembly as part of our beautiful display. At 11am the whole school held a two minute silence to show our respect for people who have fought for our country. We enjoyed writing and sharing our memorial poems.
