We started Term 2 with our Hook day for our Creative Curriculum topic ‘Remembrance’. We discussed our knowledge around the idea of Remembrance and then explored the symbol of the poppy. We talked about why and how the poppy is used as a symbol of Remembrance and created our own artwork inspired by our research.
Y6 trip to Dover’s War Memorial 12/11/21
I am extremely proud of our Year 6 today. As part of our topic on Remembrance, we walked to the Dover War Memorial and lay our wreaths upon the base. Our Head Girl and Head Boy (Jessie and George) were joined by our ‘Courageous Cat’ Advocate (Abigal) in reading the WW1 poem, ‘In Flanders Fields’. We were asked by a member of the Royal British Legion (RBL) to place a blank cross in the ground to represent the unknown soldiers; Remy and George did this with pride. The children then listened intently to a gentleman from the RBL explain about the beginnings of WW1, the significance of all of the crosses and the grave of the unknown soldier.
