2018 marks the 100 year anniversary of the end of the First World War. We at Woodfield Primary, mark this occasion with the respect it deserves as we remember all those who have fallen in subsequent conflicts.
Our children have learnt that the poppy is a symbol of Remembrance and hope and have been busy employing their painting skills to turn pebbles into beautiful red poppies. We used them to create a memorable display of gratitude towards our Armed Forces.
Our Remembrance Assembly was truly emotional. Our children read some amazing war poetry aloud and sang Pack Up Your Troubles, Keep the Home Fires Burning and The Boys That Did Not Return. At 11 o’clock, we were led into our silence with the Last Post expertly played by Mr Newland’s son. We had carefully decorated poppies in class and left assembly by attaching them to the silhouette of a fallen soldier.
*We hope to start #WoodfieldRocks in the near future – watch this space for more information!
