Today, Year 3 visited St Andrew’s Church in Cleveleys for a Remembrance workshop. The children were taken to view the memorial garden and learned about local people who had lost their lives during the First World War. Inside, the church had been beautifully decorated with many poppies, and there were information posters to help the children learn more about the war. The children took part in three different activities. The first involved climbing in to a ‘trench’ made from chairs and covers and then decorating a stone with a word and image that the children felt represented remembrance. The children also had the opportunity to decorate poppies and create a remembrance wreath which we brought back and displayed in school. Their final activity was to write a thoughtful message on a scroll and place it in a remembrance box. We brought the box back to school and will be taking out a scroll a day and discussing a daily message. The children really enjoyed this special experience today.
