Earl Soham Remembers

This morning,at 11am, the whole school gathered on the top playground to participate in an act of remembrance.

The dull and overcast conditions didn't dampen the spirit of the whole school who had been developing their understanding of what, how and why, we remember during the week.
An impeccable two minutes silence was observed by all.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Following this, six Year 6 children paid their respects and laid remembrance crosses at the village memorial.
Remember them

Eleventh hour

Meaning of war?

Everybody who died

Memories of the past

Bloody battles

Realise their sacrifice

Armies across the world

November eleventh

Courage that they had

Effort they shared

Died in hope

Awful time

Years have passed
Year 4 Acrostic Poem
