Hazel Class Remembrance
In Hazel Class we have marked Remembrance Day in a variety of ways.
We spent some time discussing the meaning of Remembrance Day and why we have poppies.
We learnt that the person who wrote the poem ‘For The Fallen,’ part of which is read out every Remembrance Day, was called Laurence Binyon and that he was born in Lancaster!
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
We listened to ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’ and ‘We’ll Meet Again’ sung by Dame Vera Lynn, and learnt about how she would go and sing to the troops during WWII to keep their spirits up.
We made lovely poppies for our Remembrance Wreath and laid it at the Village War Memorial during the Remembrance Service.
For the Remembrance Afternoon in school, we sang ‘Pack Up Your Troubles,’ and did an amazing job!
