Queen Victoria Remembrance Assembly 2018
During the remembrance service today, Mrs Walker and Mrs Hall talked to the children about ‘remembrance’, and why many people wear poppies as November 11th draws near. The poppy is a sign of remembrance, it shows we have not forgotten those who sacrificed their lives for us during the wars.
Children from Year Six read the poem ‘In Flanders Field’ and told us of the meaning behind it.
During our time of silence (as we listened to the bugler play ‘The Last Post’ ) we remembered 242 men from the Sedgley area, who lost their lives during the First World War. Two of these were, Gunner James Henry Baugh, who lived at 85 Bilston Street, Sedgley and Private Arthur Mason, who lived at 55 Holywell Street, Hurst Hill.
After School Club, used recycled bottles to make poppies for a display outside of school.
