Remembrance Day 2021

Year 5 and Year 6 visited Seaham Park Cenotaph today to take part in a liturgy before observing a 2 minutes silence, remembering the significance of today. They reflected on the soldiers in WW1 who lost their lives as well as reflecting on service men and women who have since fought bravely and gave their lives for our country.

We will remember them …

 

After paying our respects, Amelia from Y6 read the famous poem by John Mcrae called “In Flanders Field.”

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
        In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields.
