Poppies and Silence

Year 4&5 have been learning about the First World War and this year marks 100 years since the end of this conflict.  In a special assembly, Year 5 explained to Years 1, 2 3 and 4 what Remembrance Day is about and why this is marked with a one minute silence across the world. They also explained why the poppy has become the symbol for Remembrance Day and told the children that Calpe School will be marking the 100 year anniversary of peace with its own one minute silence.  Each child in Years 1-5 will make their own poppy and will take part in showing their respect to the fallen soldiers on Friday morning.
