WW1 Commemorations

posted in: Headteacher's Blog | 0

On Friday, our Key Stage 2 children marked the centenary commemorations of the end of the first world war with a service at St Bartholomew’s. There were moving tributes, readings and poems from each class and we would like to thank Rev Paul, his wife Nicci and our pianist for the service, Harriet for their help. Back in school, the younger children had their own assembly where they learnt about the centenary, why it is being marked and they then held a respectful two minutes silence.

Our corridor displays reflect the commemorations too and the children have produced some thoughtful work so please take a look next time you’re in school.

A group of children who took part in Arts Award Discover last year, visited the Corn Exchange in Witney where a special exhibition was being held to commemorate the centenary since the end of the First World war. Read more here.
