On Wednesday 11th November, we all walked down to the memorial cross outside the church to remember the soldiers who had given their lives to help keep our country safe in the wars.  We remembered ancestors of children: Great Grandparents and Great Uncles who had gone to fight for our country and not returned.  

We held our two minutes silence, listened to some poems and prayers, and then pupils from each class placed a handmade poppy wreath on the cross.  

Some children wore medals in memory of family members who had fought in the First World War.

We were joined by Canon Ivy, villagers, siblings, parents and grandparents who commented on the respect shown by the children as they took part in the memorial.
