Visits from Mrs Yarrington in Year 2 and Paul Hudson, Education Officer at The Hive in Years 3 and 4 really brought history to life. Jason from The Blue Cross told us all about the animals that helped the war-effort and how Blue Cross cared for them then... and are still caring now. Did you know that elephants were used to pull farm machinery while horses were away helping the soldiers? Neither did we!
 
Thursday...
Classes have written instructions for medal pressing, made poppy sun catchers, designed medals for our Hanbury values and completed drawings using watercolours and charcoal. 
Friday...
We had a special story about "Where the Poppies Grow" ahead of our minute silence in our Remembrance Assembly.  In the afternoon we marked the ending of World War 1 by coming together and sharing food in the hall.  The winning designs for our Hanbury Values medals were also announced - congratulations to our winners! We were all dressed in our red, white and blue clothes and in return have donated money to www.redwhiteblueday.co.uk
