Year 5 Remembrance Art
I just wanted to share this lovely Remembrance themed artwork that our Year 5 children did on 11th November 2020 - Remembrance Day.
We would usually have had a whole school assembly to bring all staff and children together for a collective service of remembrance. This year we were unable to do this due to COVID-19.
All classes shared a short clip from the Festival of Remembrance showing the Muster and the placing of the Book of Remembrance. As this was playing, Mrs Maher and I walked around school and shared a few moments in each class. The children were moved and highly respectful of the moment.
At 11:00am, the whole school observed a 2 minute silence, during which the children stood beautifully showing their respects.
This year the Festival of Remembrance also recognised the significant contributions of the NHS and Care Workers, which many of our children can connect with.
Your children are a credit to yourselves and to Borrow Wood.
