Hanbury Remembers


11th November 2021

Children and staff took time to remember today, as they marked Remembrance Day in a variety of ways.
Our whole-school Worship, led by Mr McDonagh gave us all time for silent reflection as the clock struck 11, before hearing about special ways to remember those to made the ultimate sacrifice.  We also found out why the poppy is a symbol for remembrance and renewal.
Year 2 shared "Where the Poppies Now Grow" by Hilary Robinson and Martin Impney; a beautiful story about friendship and peace.
A wellbeing walk led Year 4 to visit Hanbury Church, taking time to reflect and remember in our beautiful surroundings.  The view from the top of the hill is one of the best we know and reminds us how we are part of a big, beautiful world thanks to those who care for and defend us.
