For our Remembrance Service in school today every pupil made a poppy. Each class made different style poppies. The Key Stage Two children also wrote up poems in their best handwriting. Cherry class made tissue paper poppies and copied one of two poems that are often read on Remembrance Day. We watched a short video clip, on the BBC Schools website, of a reading of ‘For the Fallen’ by Laurence Binyon accompanied by a slideshow of archived images; and then read ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae.
Mrs Brewis then used these to make this beautiful display.
Everyone has also glued a button onto this magnificent poppy that Mrs Needham has made…
Back in class we have started to write up our Autumn poems. Here are the first ones to be finished.
We have also been sharing facts about the Ancient Egyptians. Edward brought in a fantastic painting on papyrus and Emily showed us a statue of Anubis. Our Egyptian display is also taking shape with many thanks to Mrs Moore Bethel for the fantastic paintings.
