This morning Year 6 took part in a service of Remembrance at St Mary's Church and then at the memorial for 11 o'clock. Parents of the pupils and members of the local community joined us in the church and many more joined us when we moved across to the memorial.
In the church, the children shared the poetry they had written, read a Bible reading then, at the memorial, read the Ode to Remembrance 'They shall not grow old' and also read out the names of the fallen of Northop Hall after the two minutes silence.
We were all very proud of the children, who were respectful and read confidently and loudly.
We would like to thank our Chair of Governors, Michael Hughes, for organising the use of the Church for us and another of our Governors, Jonathon Hodgins, for leading our service. We would also like to thank members of the Community Council, Linda Thew, John Golledge and Dave Norton for their contributions in organising the music and speaking during the morning. A true Community event.
Please visit the Year 6 Class Page to read the poetry written by Year 6 and for further photos.
We will remember them.
