Trips and Visits
Remembrance Day- November
To mark their respects on Remembrance Day, each class created a Poppy inspired piece of artwork in class.
The school also held a two-minute silence at 11 o'clock, which the children respected impeccably.
In the afternoon, the Service Children at school, along with Staff Sargeant Lee Fantham and Warrant Officer 2 Scott Ottewill, held an assembly. The children shared what Remembrance meant to them and Staff Sargeant Lee Fantham and Warrant Officer 2 Scott Ottewill shared some of their experiences of being in the Armed Forces.
