We came together and thought about why a poppy is worn and why we ‘Remember’. One of our pupils read a poem and we followed this with a 2 minutes silence. I was extremely proud of the respect that all of our children displayed during this time by maintaining the silence and reflecting.
We closed our act of remembrance with an extract from the poem “For the Fallen” by Laurence Binyon.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
