rem 2020 coverRemembering the sacrifices made by so many for the future of others is very important to our school community. Today, Year 6 held their very own virtual Remembrance Service which we shared with the whole school community. They recited war poetry which they wrote after studying John McCrae’s well-known poem ‘In Flander’s Fields’. The children noted the human tragedy, and most importantly, the burning desire not to forget. Even more poignant this year was their own recording of their speeches in front of war memorials and silent places across London. They sang heart wrenching hymns including Jerusalem, Make me a Channel of your Peace and Abide with Me; the emotion with which they sang and narrated, brought a tear to many an eye. Every class in the school made wreaths which the children laid in our Upton courtyard garden and which were subsequently displayed at the front of school for all to see. We are so impressed with our Year 6 pupils who put their hearts and souls into this service; they should feel very proud. A two minute silence was observed by all in school at 11am.
