We will remember them

This year marks 100 years since the end of World War I.  To commemorate this event, pupils at Bow Brickhill have been creating displays relating to the Poppy, which is used as the symbol for Remembrance Day.  

The front of the school was turned into a memorial garden, with crosses (created by Oaks) on which they wrote the names of all the men who appear on the war memorial in Bow Brickhill.  Surrounding these crosses, we planted 'poppies' made by all the children in school and displayed a Kandinski style art work of poppies, created by Acorns class.

Cedars decorated the front window of the hall with silhouettes to represent the soldiers who went to war and are based on the 'silent silhouettes' that have been on display across the country as part of the Thank You campaign by the Royal British Legion.

Maples class created poppies to display in their front window, which act like stained glass, glowing red in the light from the class.

Lastly, the whole school walked to the War Memorial today for our annual Remembrance Day service and laying of the wreath.  Mr Leeming, one of our governors, gave the address and we all observed a minute's silence.  Thank you to all the parents who also attended the memorial with us.
