Class 3 - WC 05.11.18
We have worked really hard this week and time seems to have flown really quickly.
The most amazing part of the week was when we took part in the Remembrance Parade and wreath laying at Greengates Cenotaph on Friday. In assembly that morning the pupils were taught about the significance of the poppy and what happened during World War 1. All pupils were fully engaged in this and showed maturity and dignity.
Class 3 then took the wreath and walked to the cenotaph at Greengates. We helped the gentleman who was there to remove the old poppy wreaths and crosses and made way for new one to be laid.
We were joined by members of the community and a local primary school. The primary school were ushered in by the local vicar and a Scottish piper which was really emotive and wonderful. We listened to the vicar speak about those who gave their lives for us in The Great War and said a prayer. Chloe laid a wreath on behalf of Ellar Carr and the children put their wreaths and poppy crosses in to the ground. The local nursery had also made a lovely piece with crocheted poppies. The piper then began to play again and we all walked out after the other members of the community.
We walked back to school talking about what we had done and what this meant.
Staff were extremely proud of the Class 3 for their exemplary behaviour.
Have a great weekend from all in Class 3.
