4EM spent some time today looking at the importance of remembrance in the context of Remembrance Day. We observed a respectful minute’s silence at 11:00 where we thought about the sacrifice many have made for our country.
This afternoon we talked about why we wear poppies during Remembrance and where this tradition originated. We looked at John McCrae’s poem In Flanders Fields.
We then used our knowledge to write our own Remembrance Day acrostic poems. The children came up with beautiful, thoughtful ideas which I am proud to share some of on our class page.
Keep up the good work 4EM!
