Remembrance Day

Posted on Monday, November 13th, 2017 at 9:10 pm

In readiness for our Remembrance commemorations at The Cenotaph, the children were busy making their own poppies out of red fabric, netting and black pom poms!  They showed great fine motor skills and perseverance to each create their own poppy to go on a class wreath.

Mrs Fisher and Mrs Graham worked really hard to assemble the wreath…doesn’t it look fantastic!  It’s hard to believe that it started out as 3 yellow sponges!

On Friday 11th November we walked with the whole school up to The Cenotaph at St. John’s Church.

Unfortunately we were greeted with really heavy rain and so our Commemoration service took place inside the Church.  Harley and Adelaide were chosen to represent Beech Class and lay down our class wreath at the front of the church.  They did a super job and were very respectful.

Each class created their own poppy wreath to place down at the memorial.  They all looked beautiful.

The service was beautiful and very moving.

In the afternoon our school hall was filled with parents, Grandparents and visitors from our local community.

Beech class had worked hard with Mrs O’Donnell to practice singing the song ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary!’

We performed this on the stage to everyone in the hall and sounded AMAZING! We all had smiles on our faces and even had some actions to go with our song.  We all thoroughly enjoyed it and Mrs O’Donnell was extremely proud!

Well done Beech Class!
