St. Paul’s C of E Primary School

Lest We Forget

The 11th of November doesn't fall on a school day this year, but we have still been looking at how and why we mark this important day through our collective worship together and through activities in class.

Every class has made a beautiful wreath using their hands as the poppies- either by drawing round them, or by using their handprints. These are on display in the hall and around the school. We have talked about why flowers, and the poppy in particular, are such a powerful symbol of remembrance. We have also looked at the work of the Royal British Legion for members of the armed forces, both serving and veteran, today, and why their work is so important for those they help.

Finally, in their literacy lessons today, Elm used an extract from the Wizard of Oz to produce these very moving, reflective poems by colouring in the extract to leave only the parts that the children thought were relevant to remembrance. They are on display near the Star of the Week board- do pop in and have a look, as they are beautifully illustrated and a very powerful reflective image.
