Violet class led two incredibly reflective assemblies this week for their parents/ carers and also for the staff and children in Key Stage 1. They confidently spoke about Remembrance Day, or Armistice Day, explaining how this marks the day that World War One ended in 1918. We held a two-minute silence at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month to remember those who have died in any conflict. We also learnt about why people wear poppies at this time of the year.
We are very proud of Violet class for their excellent speaking and singing and to Miss Hunt and Miss Tressol for their hard work leading the assembly. Well done to the children at the Lower School for marking Remembrance Day with such respect.
At Cypress we have been selling poppies to support the Royal British Legion. These will be on sale until Friday afternoon on the school gates.
