Throughout the course of this week all of the children across school have been making poppy wreaths and thinking about why we use the poppy as a symbol of remembrance. Each class came up with a creative way to make their poppies. During assembly on Friday morning, each class shared their wreaths and their wishes for the world. Some of the wishes were:
-We wish the countries in the world would not cause any harm to each other (Year 6)
- We wish everyone in the world were friends (Year 1)
- We wish that fighting would stop (Year 4)
- We wish there was no more war (Year 3)
- Our wish is that people talk in order to solve problems (Year 5)
A minutes silence was held at the end of assembly where the children thought about the sacrifices people have made in war which allow us to enjoy the freedoms we have today. We also discussed how many of these freedoms are part of our British Values.
