Kilham Church Of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School

Remembrance Day 2018

During Remembrance week at Kilham School the children took part in many different activities. 

Class 1 used different materials to make poppies, classes 2 and 3 made Anzac biscuits, class 4 decorated poppy biscuits and class 5 went down to the memorial at church to lay their wreath. 

We also had a theatrical performance during Remembrance week, called The Time Capsule 1918, which told all of the children about the war and what it was like for the soldiers and their families. 

As always, the year 6's went down to the memorial at church on Friday 9th November to pay their respects to the servicemen from our village. As a school, we decided to do something a little different this year and every child painted a stone with a poppy. The year 6's added the names of the servicemen from the village to their stones and laid them at the memorial with the wreath, whilst the rest of the children laid them in a flower bed at school ready to grow wild poppies around them during the spring/summer term. 

All of the children had the chance to go down to church last week with the rest of their class and admire the fantastic display that had been put together. The children were able to look at and try on different artefacts that had been taken up to the church by members of the village.


Kilham School will always remember.
