Year 6 put together a beautiful collection of reflective and emotive poems using the book 'Where the poppies grow now' and the poem 'In Flanders Fields' to spark their imagination. We made these into a book and took them down to the war memorial where we had some quiet moments of reflection. We learnt about those from Ware who gave their lives and the families who lost precious family members. Some children shared their emotive poems and we also listened to a wonderful recital of the poem 'We Remember Them'.
Mrs Hammond also entrusted us to place crosses in memory of her great grandad and great uncle, which we were honoured to do. We enjoyed hearing about their stories and their bravery.
