As is the tradition at Pinchbeck East C of E Primary School, the whole school gathered for a Remembrance Day service at the War Memorial. Prior to the service, the Year 6 children studied the origins of Remembrance Day and created poems in honour of those who have died for their country in the First World War and all wars since. A selection of these poems were read by the children at the service and all of the Year 6 pupils recited ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae.
With the support of Mr. and Mrs. Seymour from the British Legion, the children learned about the significance of the poppy and helped to create the poppy wreath. Soldiers from other countries were remembered in the laying of a wreath made from yellow chrysanthemums. This wreath was assembled by Year 6 children who originate from a variety of overseas countries, with the help of the Chair of Governors, Mrs. Helen Banks.
The photographs of the commemoration service were taken by Mr. David Shaw(governor).
