We Will Remember Them

On Friday 9th November, Year 6 led the school in a moving liturgy to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War 1. As a school, we prayed together for all people who have died in conflict before creating a cross of poppies and light. Many children across the school had made poppies in class and were wearing them proudly. Year 6 made beautiful 3D poppies which adorned the focus table.

During the liturgy we also thought about Articles 22 and 38. We prayed for all children who have been forced to flee their homes as a result of war and children who have been affected by wars or armed conflicts in any way.
