We observed Armistice Day in school last Wednesday, the 11th November. Throughout the week in class, we looked at the significance of remembrance and the different ways in which we pay tribute to the men and women who have lost their lives in conflict throughout history. This year, Eagles class were particularly interested to learn of the role of animals in wartime and this led on to us researching the significance of the different coloured poppies that are worn at this time of year. We joined the other KS2 classes in a service at the war memorial in St Mary's churchyard at 11am where the children observed two minutes silent reflection, listened to the Last Post and heard the names of the men from Denby Parish that lost their lives in WW1 read out. Tributes were laid on the memorial and a poem and prayers read to end our service. We were very proud of the children who showed great respect and compassion throughout the day.
