On Friday 11.11.22, Year 6 had a visit to ‘The Remembrance Meadow’ – an area in Blackley Forest – where we spent some time with Dot and some of ‘The Friends of Blackley Forest’.
The children read some poems – both some well known poems and some that they wrote themselves. They did an amazing job.
We were thrilled to be joined by some talented bugle players who played ‘The Last Post’, we observed a two minute silence and heard the cannons in the distance.
We laid a wreath on the memorial bench, and a selection of the lovely poems that some of the children have written are now permanently displayed there.
