Priorswood Primary School children and staff were delighted to be involved with St Andrew’s Church recent remembrance display.
The school was contacted by St Andrew’s Church members and asked if the children would like to be involved in a poignant Remembrance display being created at St Andrews Green by contributing some of their own poetry.
Priorswood were very pleased to have been asked and jumped at the opportunity to be part of such an exciting and special community event. The Year 2 and 6 children set about exploring and researching the meaning of Remembrance and creating poems about the subject.
The children also discussed the importance of remembrance, the symbolic wearing of the poppy and the two minutes silence held every year. The Year 5’s also did some art work and were keen to be involved.
The pupils at Priorswood will mark Remembrance Day with two minutes silence on Wednesday 11 th November at 11am. Alison Perry a member of the St Andrew’s church has told Tone News:
The poems written by the children show that they had a really good understanding of why we have a period of remembrance
