Whole school assembly: we will remember them 

We gathered together this afternoon to think about why weigh buy a poppy.  
  
  We joined together in hymns that prayed for peace and using poetry to help us think about soldiers who gave up so much for us. 
Do you know what the Royal British Legion do with the money raised from the poppy appeal? 

  We must never forget we thought about the reasons why we must remember. It is our duty to keep the story alive so that our children will one day understand the sacrifice that was made for them.

We prayed for peace in our world and thought especially of those who have had to leave a war torn area recently as a refugee.

Perhaps visit your local war memorial this weekend or watch the match past the cenotaph on the television on Sunday morning.

Lest we forget
