Special Event - Remembrance Day

11 November 2015

On Remembrance Day, Year 6 in their English lesson looked at two poems: ‘For the Fallen’ and ‘We Shall Keep the Faith’ and thought about the meaning behind them both. The children also compared the poems.

The Year 6 children also wrote their own Remembrance Day poetry. Some children wrote a rhyming poem, others wrote an acrostic poem.

During our RE lesson the children took a moment to reflect on the Soldiers who fought and those who died for their country. The children wrote a prayer to thank God for the bravery and courage of the soldiers.
