This year, Remembrance was celebrated in several different ways around Berkswich Primary School. The children were taught about the importance of remembering, why we remember and also how different people remember.
Remembering at Age UK in Stafford
For the second year, we were invited to attend the Age UK remembrance service in Stafford. The children performed two poems and joined in with the songs. They were a credit to the school and came back with wonderful stories for the school.
Mr Gilson in assembly
Mr. Gilson, from St. Thomas' came into school to talk to us about remembrance. The children were able to ask questions and reflect on what remembrance means to them. He then presented school council with their Age UK certificates.
Selling poppies around school
Year Six had the wonderful task of selling poppies around school.
'Everyday, we walked around selling poppies and other remembrance items at different prices.'- Sam Y6
'We raised money for the poppy appeal; money goes to soldiers and also soldier's families. We thoroughly enjoyed our experiences.' - Ella, Y6
