Remembrance Day. We read passages from Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo
and poetry including The Sentry by Wilfred Owen and Flanders Fields by John
McCrae. We also studied archive footage from British Pathe Newsreel. We then
wrote our own emotive verses, some of which are published below.
Dolphin and Swallow classes visited the village war memorial this morning to
take part in a service of remembrance. We laid a wreath and shared a few of
our poems there. Later in the morning, Dolphin Class presented poetry and
prayers during the school's Remembrance Day Assembly.
