In Elm class we have been have been discussing the meaning behind remembrance day. We have got into the mindset of a soldier and written descriptive pieces and poems. The children have all been very thoughtful and shown great compassion.
For Remembrance Day, Olive Class listened to the story of the Christmas truce that happened on Christmas Day in 1914 in no-man’s land . We learned about why it is important that we remember all the fallen soldiers and we talked about how brave they all were for giving their lives. We talked about the significance of the red poppy and why we still wear them today. The children asked some really interesting questions and learnt a lot about the importance of Remembrance Day.
