Remembrance Day

In order to mark the 100th anniversary of the time when the guns fell silent at the end of World War One the pupils at Stoke Park were assigned a voluntary homework - Tp commemorate the event in a way that they saw fit. The thought and effort that went in to the children's work was inspiring and truly reflected the significance of the war to local families. 

 

 

 

A fantastic display was created in the school hall and parents were invited in to see the range of thought provoking work. 

The school held a memorial assembly on the Friday before the 11th November at which a minutes silence was held and The Last Post played. The names of local men who had died in the conflict was also read out in a moving tribute to those who gave their lives. 

Lots of children had carried out an incredible amount of research into the war and many had brought in examples of how the war had affected their own families. 

Their was a great diversity in the work produced, from family trees involving relatives who had fought, to creative memorial displays involving the poppy. 

I am sure you will agree from looking at the photos that the children have really taken on board the meaning and importance of the event. 

Thank you to all those children and adults who helped to create such a fantastic tribute to the sacrifice of those who gave their lives for our freedom.
