Year 2's Remembrance Walk

Remembering those who fought in the war.

On Monday the 11th of November Year 2 walked to Thurmaston War Memorial to show their respect. The children of Year 2 had made a poppy wreath and laid the wreath on the day, joining other schools and people from the community. They participated in a 2 minute silence and were invited to go into the nearby church to ask war veterans questions and learn more about their experiences of being in the forces and at war. They were lucky with the weather as the rain cleared and the autumnal sunshine shone brightly. It was a great experience and they all learned lots.
