Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget

 This morning, at 11am Pupils from Magpie and Starling Class gathered around   Whitstable War Memorial to lay wreaths in commemoration to the fallen. The school fell silent on the eleventh hour to honour those who served and continue to serve their country.


During class, the children discussed the significance of the Poppy and designed memorial benches and wrote poetry.


"The poppy is the enduring symbol of remembrance of the First World War. It is strongly linked with Armistice Day (11 November), but the poppy's origin as a popular symbol of remembrance lies in the landscapes of the First World War. Poppies were a common sight, especially on the Western Front."
