On Friday 11th November all the children in the school undertook thoughtful learning about Remembrance including history, music and PSHE.
Representatives from our school council and Forces Friends attended the two minute silence and laid a wreath in Sparrow Park Torpoint.
In the afternoon we held our own Remembrance Day ceremony in the school playground on 11th November. The children were joined by the parents from our Forces Friends Group, together with special guests from The Royal British Legion, Torpoint and Rame Royal Naval Association, The Mayor and Mayoress of Torpoint, alongside other Torpoint Town Councillors and members of the School Governing Body.The children, aged from two years to seven years and Guests sang The National Anthem, I Vow to Thee My Country and Imagine , they also read appropriate poems. Each class had made their own poppy wreath and these were laid by the flagpole by members of each class. At the end of the very moving ceremony the children marched form the playground whilst singing ‘It's a Long Way to Tipperary'.
On Sunday 13th November children from Forces Friends took part in Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service.
“It is important that our children not only learn about Remembrance Day but have time to reflect and show respect for the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces over the years so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have today. This ceremony in the playground with the whole school is incredibly moving for everyone taking part".
