Remembrance Day

 At Braunstone Frith Primary School we learn about other cultures and also celebrate British values.

Every year the school comes together to remember and commemorate the lives given for us. The whole school and any visitors congregate on the school playground for a minute of silence. A poem is read and the last post is played. All the children stand silently to respect those who gave their lives. We are very proud!

This year as the centenary  of the end of WW1 was celebrated. The whole school and visitors remembered those who have sacrificed so much.

Hi,

 Just want to say thank you for hosting this mornings meeting and extending the invitation to join pupils and staff for a minutes silence and remembrance for the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1.  The children were absolutely amazing and a credit to the school . I can honestly say I didn’t hear a word from them.  They must also be congratulated on their movements around the school, very orderly and quiet.  Well done to all of them ... and the staff too.

Below is a sample of the different ways we have commemorated Remembrance Day over the years....... 

 

The whole school, children and staff dress as soldiers, nurses, and others from any of the conflicts past or recent that we remember on the 11th November.

        

 

Every class spends part of the day learning about the history of  World War I & II. We look at pictures of the poppies and learn why they represent remembrance.
