Sunday marked the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that brought an end to the First World War. As is traditional, the children ended their parade at the war memorial where they laid a wreath as a mark of respect to those who lost their lives.  Mrs Sarah Moore, Executive Headteacher, said ‘Our Christian Values so far this academic year have been Creation and Creativity in Term 1 and Friendship in Term 2 and these help to support the children’s understanding of Remembrance.  They have taken pride in selling and wearing their poppies.  I was especially proud of the Year 6 pupils from each school who attended the parade and laid our wreaths at the war memorial”. 


All children from both schools took part in thought-provoking Remembrance assemblies in school where we reflected on the sacrifice that so many have made for us.  The children at Bourne Abbey were also been fortunate enough to welcome Flt Lieutenant Dainton, a serving member of the RAF police, to the special assembly on Friday.  She spoke to the children about the anniversary as well as the British values that underpin the RAF.  The collective worship ended with the children observing a minute’s silence and listening to John McCrae’s ‘In Flanders’ Fields.’
