Remembrance Day 2014

Home » News » Remembrance Day 2014

11th November 2014 has been a very special day for Wybunbury Delves. Today, as a whole school, we came to remember those who fought in World War 1; we also thought about those who lost their lives in wars after 1918.

To begin the day, our morning worship focused on World War 1. Each class came to the front to share their learning. Preschool, Reception and Year 1 shared their beautiful Poppy art work and told us why the Poppy is used to remember The Great War. Year 2 moved on to explain which countries were friends with each other during the war (the allied and axes countries) and Year 4 performed a play to explain why the war began. To help us understand who went to war, and how they were recruited, Year 3 shared propaganda poster with us and sang war songs; the songs were very upbeat and cheerful. However, once war had started, it was not exactly what the soldiers had expected. Life in the trenches was very hard and Year 5 shared their poetry with us to help us understand what it would have been like to be there. Lastly, during the war, some men no longer wanted to fight and Year 6 explained what it meant to be a deserter.

At 11 o'clock, the whole school gathered together around the Ice Poppy to mark the two minutes silence. Our living art work captivated the children throughout the day and many were amazed to see how many people had relatives who served in World War 1; the children were intrigued to hear their class mates' stories about how Wybunbury families were involved in the war. The medals, artifacts and replicas which were brought into share were truly extraordinary. Thank you to family members for allowing these precious items to come to school.

Lastly, please let me say a very big thank you for all the hard work the school children, parents and teachers have put in to today. The children looked wonderful in their costumes and without your support, today would not have been as powerful and moving as it was. Thank you!

"Lest we forget!"
