Remembrance at Hacton

November 11, 2015
Today at Hacton, we joined with people around the world to stand in silent contemplation. We stopped. We thought. We remembered.

In both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 assemblies this week we have discussed the reasons why we wear poppies and about the importance of remembrance. We have not forgotten the people who sacrificed so much for our country. 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, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning - the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

Children in Reception made their own poppies to hold during the silence at eleven o'clock. Later in the day they painted pictures and added their poppies to classroom displays.
