This year marks the 100-year anniversary of the return of the body of the Unknown Soldier to be buried in Westminster Abbey. Remembrance parades were disrupted across the country so this year, our acts of Remembrance in school have been quieter though just as meaningful. On Wednesday 11 November at 11.00am, each class observed the two-minute silence before two pupil representatives walked to the Memorial in Wadhurst to lay a wreath on behalf of the school community. Children have learned through Art, History and Literacy activities about the significance of the poppy, the sacrifices made and why it is important to remember. We placed poppy crosses bearing the names of our loved ones, now deceased, in our Quiet Garden, as a visible reminder of the sacrifices made and the honour we give to those who have made and continue to make the ultimate sacrifice so that we may enjoy peace and liberty today.
