Remembrance Day 2015

Home » News » Remembrance Day 2015

Remembrance Day 2015 has been extremely important for Wybunbury Delves and the whole community. For the very first time, thanks to Wybunbury's World War 1 Group, we have known the names of the men from our parish who deserve our thanks. 20 of these men were former pupils of the school and on the eve of Remembrance Day, a plaque was unveiled to ensure they will always be remembered.

The unveiling was a very moving service and many people from the village attended! The plaque, which now resides in our school hall, is a very fitting tribute to our boys and the school would like to say thank you for all the hard work and generous donations that allowed this project to come to fruition.

The names on the plaque, our 20 former pupils, became the focus of our learning this Remembrance Day.

In lower school, the children learnt about the importance of remembering. To help us understand why we remember, preschool and Reception sang a beautiful song. Year 1 and 2 then went onto look at why poppies were used; the art work and poetry that both year groups created was a credit to them. Year 3 and Year 4 looked at how the boys' lives would have changed and what life in the trenches would have been like. Artwork inspired by the trenches was created by Year 3 and Year 4 used Flanders' Fields as their inspiration. Year 5 and 6 went on to look at each of the boys as individuals. In particular: when they came to the school; where they lived in the village and how they fell during the Great War. If you would like to hear Harry and Larissa share some of their learning with BBC Radio Stoke, go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p036jtjr#play (approximately 2 hours and 25 minutes in).

We are honoured to have been presented with the memorial plaque. It will forever be used by the school to ensure our students never forget the ultimate sacrifice that so many made on their behalf. A sacrifice that has allowed them live in a country where freedom, tolerance and respect are cherished.

'Lest we forget'
