Supporting Forces Children

Forces Group

One lunchtime a week, usually Tuesdays,  there is a forces group which we can choose to go to. We enjoy playing and working with other children who have parents in the Armed Forces.

In this group we  have:

  • talked about Remembering and Remembrance and written on poppy crosses for the Field of Remembrance at Royal Wootton Basset
  • thought about what friends are
  • taken part on challenges and played board games together
  • made new friends
  • thought about ways we communicate; including through poppies
  • taken part in events with the  MKC Heroes Standard 
  • talked  places our parents have visited around the world.
  • talked about the people our parents have met.
  • thought about people who help us

She often comes out of school talking enthusiastically about Forces group….I feel the group has helped her feel she has a special identity and is part of a strong group and this has given her extra confidence.  She has made friends with children that she may never have interacted with , children she has a lot in common with.
