This morning, class 4S joined all the other adults and children from the school for a special Act of Remembrance in front of specially invited guests and our superb display of poppies created which have all been created by the children. It was also lovely to see some 4S parents in the crowd; thank you for your continued support. I was immensely proud of the class behaviour, their super singing and mature attitude towards this service. A special thank you should also go to Mrs Beaumont for coordinating this event and for her creative vision with producing the poppies and for our very own Mrs Howlett for arranging the silhouetted soldiers.
To help the children to commemorate such a momentous occasion, I have included the following poem that you may wish to share:
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields
Have a lovely weekend!
