At 11am on Tuesday 11th November we gathered as a school to hold a two minute silence to remember those who had died in conflicts across the world since the Great War.
Members of the pottery club had used the installation at The Tower of London as inspiration, and made ceramic poppies that were planted in the green area near the school hall. The Last Post was played by James from Year 8 (please see our Facebook page), and there were readings by members of year 8, including Hamish who read out his poem, written especially for the day.
A Poem of Remembrance
We will remember the people who fought
We will remember the people who were caught
We will remember the people who fell
We will remember the people who could not tell
We will remember them
We will remember the sudden gunfire
We will remember the shocking shellfire
After the redness of the Poppies growth
On the muddy battle fields we all know
