Year 2 visited the War Memorial in Shaw just after Armistice Day. Our History topic is to understand the significance of Remembrance Day and also to imagine what is must have been like to be a soldier in the war. The children were so respectful during their visit and despite the wet weather they didn’t complain at all. They sketched different parts of the memorial, including the statue at the top and the names on the side. They also sketched the poppy wreaths and the crosses. They took great pleasure in finding the Buckstones’ wreath that was placed there on Remembrance Sunday by our Y6 School Councillors. A wonderful trip that the children thoroughly enjoyed.
