Wybunbury Delves Remembers

Home » News » Wybunbury Delves Remembers

This week at Wybunbury Delves, from Preschool to Year 6, we have worked hard to mark the centenary of the Great War.

Each class took on their own individual projects, finding their own way to mark this historic occasion. Many of us chose to remember in a creative way by producing artwork or poetry. The finished projects beautiful.

Today we came together for our own Remembrance Day. As staff and children arrived at school, they laid an ice balloon to create an Ice Poppy Sculpture. Each balloon was marked with the name of a family member who had served in the Great War; it was humbling to see just how many of our families had been touched by this momentous moment in history.

Each of you came dressed in wonderful outfits to mark the occasion — thank you! Also, thank you to all of you who brought in and shared wonderful photos and artefacts. Each class enjoyed hearing the remarkable stories behind them.

For the first part of the morning we were joined by a member of our village community. She came in to share the fascinating story of her Great Grandad who was a member of our school and who fought and survived both World Wars. All the children loved hearing about his adventures and found the documents and photos so interesting. We would all like to say a very big thank you for joining us and helping us remember.

Our worship was also a special one. We were joined by Russell Elision-Jones from Wybunbury's World War 1 Group. He told us about the end of the war and shared some of the interesting details about how Wybunbury marked the end of the war (once the news of peace had finally reached our little village). We also laid two wreaths at the base of our cross and talked about the 20 boys who came to our school and made the ultimate sacrifice. Have you seen the poppies outside of school? Each one contains one of their names.

Finally, we came together at 11 o'clock to observe two minutes silence.

Thank you to all of you for helping us mark this historic moment.
