At 11 o'clock, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, we remember those people who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. On this day as a school we came together to silently reflect on the sacrifices made by our brave service men and women.
We watched a National Whole School Assembly broadcast live from the Tower of London which explained a little bit about the ceramic poppies and the importance of why we must remember. You can watch the assembly below.
They did it for Britain
The war is gone and all that remains are poppies to be seen
On Flanders fields the plants are grown on a lovely field of green.
The soldiers will not come back in a touch of a mitten
They risked their lives but they did it for Britain
The time has come for remembrance
They risked their lives to save us
Around the Tower of London lies a flower bed
Also known as the sea of red
Tears of joy start to thicken
They risked their lives. they did it for Britain.
As the coin gleamed in the light,
I wondered where mother could be at this time of night.
The sky was clear,
But I was in fear.
The birds flew
And my fear grew,
I looked up high
Then waved goodbye.
The train went on,
And the night grew long.
The whistle blew,
As I said bye Britain,
I'll miss you.
