Event - Remembrance Day

11 November 2014

On Tuesday 11th November 2014 the whole school held a special service to remember those who died in all wars.

As we have five war graves in the parish cemetery each class made a paper poppy wreath which they laid on these special graves. This year as it is the hundredth anniversary of the First World War the children also laid a poppy cross on the memorial plaque in church.

Every class made a poppy wreath.
