Nurturing potential within a Christian ethos

Remembrance Day

Our lovely Remembrance Day Service today was led by Rev. Tony and included contributions of prayers from years 3 & 4 and readings from year 6. Children from the First School classes made beautiful wreaths which were laid together with a wreath from RAF High Wycombe. Even the smallest children observed the 2 minutes silence without a sound!



During Writing Journals, Jack wrote this poem which we would like to share with you:


Jack’s Poem for Remembrance


Is it too much to ask to wear one small flower of red,

To remember the people who are now dead?

How many of your great grandfathers lived in the trench?

And not just the English, the Americans and French?

How many of you would go to the wars?

And when ready at the foes march forth?

Do you still think on the eleventh of the eleventh of the eleventh?

If so, I don’t think it is too much to ask to wear a flower of red,

To remember people who are now dead.
