Year 6 spent time at Latham Road on Armistice Day thinking about remembrance.
Staff shared some war poems which encouraged the pupils to think about conflicts. This was followed by the lines from 'For the Fallen', a poem by Laurence Binyon, the Last Post and a 2 minutes silence.
Then the pupils created some natural art. They used rosemary in their installations to show what remembrance means to them. Finally they imagined that they were a squad of soldiers moving with stealth and determination to recover a lost and wounded soldier (a member of their group who was hiding). The staff were impressed with their mature attitude, attention to detail and enthusiasm on a drizzly morning. Beatrice commented at the end that "it was a great way of commemorating our remembrance day.".
