B Cador: November 2016
Yesterday was 11th November. The 11th November is the special day we stop, think about and remember all those people who have lost their lives in wars.
Our Service of Remembrance took place shortly before 11am at the front of school, where the whole school gathered quietly around our flag pole, under the Union flag.
We were delighted that Mrs Speed and Reverend Alison were able to join us. Mrs Speed is our kitchen assistant but she also has another very important job. She is the standard bearer for Wrenbury and District British Legion. We were able to see her wearing her uniform and acknowledge the good work of the British Legion.
After introducing Mrs Speed and Rev Alison, there was an explanation as to why we wear the poppy to mark this special time of year. Year 6 children then read aloud the poem 'In Flanders Field'.
Mrs Mansfield was thanked. She had bought a poppy, on behalf of the school, which was to be placed at the Menin Gate in Ypres as part of their Service of Remembrance.
It was then time to think about the men who had once attended Wrenbury Primary School and had later lost their lives in WW1 and WW2. Ben read their names out in a roll of honour.
Two wreaths were then laid at the foot of the flag pole. One on behalf of Wrenbury Primary School and one on behalf of Wrenbury and District British Legion. A respectful minute of silence was then held before Lucy closed our school part of the service. Reverend Alison said a final prayer before we all left in quiet thought.
Later in the day, during the Y6 assembly, James (Y5) presented his power point on why we wear the poppy. It was thoughtfully and well presented.
Apologies that some of the photos cannot be viewed without tilting the head but hope they capture a feel of our Service of Remembrance.
