A couple of weeks ago all the children took part in an Armistice project to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. Our children have been learning about the front line, life in the trenches and the reality of what it meant to be a solider. The children visited the Priory Church to look at their memorial WWI display, entitled ‘Remembering the Fallen 1914-1918: The Great War Heroes of Bridlington’ – 335 cardboard silhouettes representing local people who lost their lives in the war – a truly moving reminder of what was sacrificed by local families.
We proudly display our giant poppy at the front of our school and each child made a poppy to add to our lovely Armistice display at the front entrance hall, to remember those that gave up so much in the past for us. A lot of thought provoking poetry was created by each class and some of these poems are displayed with the poppies. Thank you again to Dawn and Lee from Animated Objects for another interesting journey down memory lane.
