Remembrance 2022











Today we held our Remembrance service in school, which was as usual a memorable occasion and gave us all time for reflection. We were joined by some very special guests; Mr Green represented the Royal British Legion who presented the Standard, Lieutenant Colonel (retired), Shaun Wilson read a poem and Mr Butler and Mrs Holmes played the last post on their bugles for us. During the assembly the Year 5 children explained the meaning behind Remembrance and presented photographs of the young men who fought in the First World War from the village. They lit a candle for each of them and placed a wooden cross by it in their memory.

The whole school, many parents and members of the community joined together in a minute's silence and listened to all the children sing a special song for this special assembly.

After the assembly we walked across to the War Memorial to lay the wooden crosses and were joined by Mrs Rowley who placed a wreath on behalf of the Parish Council.

We were extremely proud of all the children who were very respectful but especially the Year 5 children who did a fabulous job.
