On Monday 11th November, we marked Remembrance Day in some very special ways. John Curtin visited the school to deliver three workshops about his wartime experiences. John was 4 at the beginning of WW2 and he showed the children the food that was available as part of their weekly rationing, talked about children being evacuated and showed them a 50% scaled Anderson shelter. The children had many insightful questions and John was incredibly entertaining, even breaking out into song during one workshop!
At 11am we held our silence in the play ground where we could hear the canons and bugle all the way from Market Hill. Our Y6 children took part in the Remembrance Day service on Market Hill. The children represented the school fantastically, showing respect and behaving exceptionally well. We were lucky enough to have the chance to meet some of the soldiers after the service and the children asked lots of thoughtful questions. A big well done to Edie and Dan for reading so confidently during the service.
