“We will remember them”

Saturday 10 November 2018

Remembrance Day 2018 

For reflection time this week, Foundation watched a presentation and had a discussion about the importance of the poppy emblems that many of the children have brought into school. We spoke about Remembrance Day, who we are remembering and about the centenary.

Ask your child if they can remember how many years it has been since the end of World War I

The children created some beautiful poppy decorations which they were very proud to take home in the afternoon.

If you’re attending any parades or services at the weekend, we’d love to hear about it in class. Perhaps your child could draw a picture or write a sentence about the experience, to share with their friends.

If you’re attending the parade in Wetherby this weekend, you may spot some familiar faces! Miss Beatson and some children from our school will be walking in the parade.

Home-Link Challenge: 

Next week, for Anti-Bullying Week 2018, Foundation will be thinking about kind and unkind behaviours or actions. In preparation for this, we’d like you to have a discussion with your child about their friends. Please use this prompt: “Tell me about a time when one of your friends has been kind to you.” Please write down exactly what your child says, in their own words. We’ll use their responses in our learning this week.
