Lest we Forget
Today we had a whole school assembly based on Remembrance Day. We discussed what peace meant to us. People from our local community talked about the war and those that had died from Toppesfield and Gainsford End while fighting in the war. In Toppesfield there are 20 elm trees planted in various locations to remember each person from the community that died and one for their families.
We also made origami doves. Our house captains assisted and instructed their house groups on how to make the doves. Next we made a collage to represent our thoughts and ideas on peace and remembrance. These will be displayed in the church on Sunday the 11th of November for the Remembrance Ceremony.
Following are the photos of our school working together on a very important project.
