The children of Ellel St John’s always remember, with respect, this special time of year, when we honour and remember those who have given their lives for their country in the many wars and conflicts over the years.
Again we held a short service at the Cenotaph at St John’s Church, this year having to take shelter inside the church against the wind, cold and rain. Each class laid the wreath of poppies they had made and we remembered in poem, prayer and silence those who have died.
In the afternoon we invited friends and families to listen to each class sing a song from the war time. Our year 6 were wonderful hosts and the afternoon was both poignant and joyful.
