Remembrance at Hacton

Today at Hacton, on the 11th day, of the 11th month at the 11th hour, we joined with people around the world to stand in silent contemplation. We stopped. We thought. We remembered.

Children gathered around our poppy memorial to remember those who sacrificed so much for our country. Our assembly this week looked at the reasons why we wear poppies and about the importance of remembrance. Our pupils learnt that Armistice Day is commemorated every year on November 11 to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany. We looked at the words and signs to the poem 'In Flanders Fields' and thought about the sacrifices that were made.
