Remembrance at Marlfields

Today the children at Marlfields met for a very special reason, our Remembrance Assembly.
Year 6 led our assembly by introducing us to why we use the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month each year and why the poppy is a national symbol of Remembrance. After teaching us facts which we never knew, showed us amazing poems which they created as well as their stunning art work we then paid our respect with our two minutes of silence to remember and respect those who gave their lives for future generations.

Year 6 then led the children through the school to our memorial in the front entrance where everyone lay their poppies created in the class.

Remembrance is a special time for all and the respect that the children have shown has been incredible during this special time.
Thank you Marlfields.
