On Monday the school held a special Remembrance Service at St Peter’s Church to remember the fallen during conflict in the two world wars. This special event also celebrated the end of WW1.
In preparation for this event our Year 6s made pottery poppies each with an initial of a fallen solder during conflict. The choir practised songs for the occasion and each year group played their part.
One of our retired teachers, Mr Groves posted on social media it was a “Wonderful morning helping Sheringham Community Primary School’s Remembrance Service at St Peter’s Church. Lovely to see the school community together in good voice. Year 6 had made ceramic poppies and put initials in for each of the fallen from our Town during WW1. It was a privilege to be part of the service and witness the great respect the children showed. The final song brought a lump to many of our throats!”
“We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me”
Special Thank you’s go to Rev Christian Heycocks, Mr Perry, Miss West, Mr T Groves for organising the day and Mr Cooper and Jenny Skivington for their work with the choir. Finally, thank you to all the parents, teachers and teaching assistants and children.
