Armistice Day - Centenary Remembrance
Today children in Class 2 delivered their memorial display to Farlam Church, walking to the church from school, imagining journeys to war.
They have been so absorbed in research for this project with a local focus. Within the display there is a poppy to represent each of the names on the memorial at Farlam Church and also includes the names of the young men we discovered on a war record which details Hallbankgate School Roll of Honour from WW1. The children used diaries from the trenches and front line and other historical sources from the Archive Centre to reflect on everyday life and the commitment and sacrifice these men gave, allowing us the freedom we enjoy in our lives today.
Whilst at the church, the children made links to their RE learning identifying all the features within the church. They reflected on local lives lost in the war, visiting five war graves and gathered at the memorial for a prayer and a moment’s reflection.
I’m sure you will agree they have created a fantastic tribute to all those who fought or lost their lives in WW1 and subsequent conflicts. Everyone is welcome to Farlam Church this Sunday at 10.50am for a special Armistice Day Centenary Service.
