In celebrating and talking about why we celebrate Remembrance Day, we teach our children about the significance of history and the importance of cherishing peace. It is an opportunity to educate and inspire, to foster a sense of gratitude, empathy, and respect for those who served and continue to serve.
Class 4/5 have worked tremendously hard in creating artwork to be displayed at the Parish Hall in preparation for the Remembrance Service on Sunday 12th November.
Not only did we create the traditional red poppy we also created purple poppies which are worn to remember animals that have been victims of war. Animals like horses, dogs and pigeons were often drafted into the war effort, and those that wear the purple poppy feel their service should be seen as equal to that of human service.
We are incredibly proud of how the children followed the Thrybergh way by showing respect and working hard.
