Last Friday children from Year 2 and Year 5 walked down to Wombwell cemetery to take part in a Remembrance Service. While they were there, they explored the cemetery and learned to tell the difference between a war memorial and a war grave. Everyone found it extremely interesting and although sometimes children were sad to see men had passed away so young, it also enabled them to begin to understand the sacrifice they made.
Everyone who took part was credit to the school and showed outstanding behaviour throughout the visit. The year 5 children were fantastic role models for the year 2s and helped keep them safe and explained different things during the walk around the cemetery.
It was also fantastic to see so many parents and other adults from around Wombwell who gave their time to take part in the service with our pupils.
Children from each class made their own poppy wreath to lay as a sign of respect and to remember those who had passed away. Can you remember what the colours of the poppy stand for?
