On Friday 9th November the whole school celebrated Remembrance Day. We had a theme day with each class visiting various workshops to learn more about Remembrance Day and World War 1. We had our photos taken in front of a Poppy field backdrop painted beautifully by Art Club. We took cover when we heard the sirens and experienced life inside an air raid shelter whilst we waited for the all clear. We formed a marching band and played instruments and sang along to World War 1 songs including 'Pack up your troubles'. In the Hydrotherapy pool we explored our senses with a Poppy themed extravaganza. We made Poppy biscuits and read poetry in the Food Technology room.
Throughout the course of the day we built our 'Remembrance Wall' by attaching memories of those special to us on each brick. In the morning we had a whole school assembly and were joined by Sam, a bugle player from St Columbus School who kindly played 'The Last Post' for us to introduce and close our 2 minutes silence at 11 o'clock.
