On November 10th, 2008 there was an assembly at our school.
It was the day before Remembrance Day and all the classes in the school headed to the gym. As all the classes were going to the assembly, students were fixing their poppies. If you don’t know what a poppy is, it’s a type of flower to remind us about all the soldiers killed in WW1 and WW2, and other wars too.
The assembly talked about the wars and soldiers, and why the soldiers died then to make peace today. Also in the assembly students sang a song about Flanders Fields, and we shared our Hands Up for Peace images. There were two videos made from our teacher. Here is one of the videos from the assembly.
(Note from Ms Smith: This is not the same video we shared at the assembly; a few of the images are cropped, but I think the students’ messages come through.)
