Pupils at The Grange commemorated Armistice Day on Wednesday 11th November. The children listened to an assembly talking about the significance of the Remembrance and remembering those who have fought and fallen in war; the children then held a minute silence at 11pm.
Each year group also created their own commemorative poppy wreaths symbolising each of the four poppies:
Year 3: The black poppy commemorates the contributions of African and Caribbean communities to the war effort as service men and women and as civilians.
Year 4: The purple poppy is often worn to remember animals that have been victims of war.
Year 5: The red poppy (most often the most recognisable) is a symbol for both remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.
Year 6: The white poppy is worn as a symbol for peace and a challenge to attempt to glamorise or celebrate war.
The poppy wreaths will be displayed in the main school corridor as a symbol of our children’s understanding and commemoration of remembrance.
