Gentleshaw's Remembrance Day.

Friday 9th November marked Gentleshaw’s Remembrance Day. Prior to the day, the children were all asked to bring in a stone; these were painted and used to create a whole school poppy. Throughout the day the children enjoyed a variety of activities including, Monet-style poppy painting, poppy crafts and role-play. The children enjoyed all the activities and it allowed them to understand why we remember and wear a poppy. During the afternoon Reverend Lynn held a service to remember those who had fought in all conflicts. She read out the names of servicemen from Gentleshaw whom lost their lives fighting and the children listened to prayers and hymns. Reverend Lynn finished the service with a two-minute silence and then played the Last Post, during this Sycamore and Willow created a heart out of poppies they had made with Mr Chapman. Another great day! To see pictures of all the activities don’t forget to check out our twitter page.
