Year 4 Remembrance Day Assembly

Date: November 10, 2012 Author: Admin Categories: News

On Friday 9th November, children from Year 4 led a very thoughtful whole school assembly about Remembrance. Many families and friends came along to watch and to support.

A second showing of this special assembly enabled pupils and staff from Year 2 at Barwell Infant School to join us.

The video below shows some of the children who took part. The accompanying music was recorded at one of the ‘Last Post’ services that takes place every evening at the Menin Gate in Ypres, Belgium, which is in the area of Flanders – the area of fighting in World War 1 in which the poppies grew that inspired John McCrae to write ‘In Flanders Fields’
