Year 2- Remembrance Day

By 10/11/2023History

Today, Year 2 visited the cenotaph in Wickersley to pay our respects to the local soldiers who died in WW1. This concludes some work that we have been doing in history lessons over the last few weeks on Remembrance day and WW1.

Each child was given the name of one of the individuals remembered on the cenotaph with some extra information about them. We found it very sad that some of the soldiers who died were only teenagers while many others had their own children waiting for them at home. Children had to find the name of the soldier they were given on the cenotaph.

At 11:00am, we had a two minutes silence as a sign of respect.
