Children at Bicker Preparatory School mark Remembrance with their own service
Year 5 and 6 pupils at Bicker Preparatory School and Early Years put together their own Remembrance Service at the village war memorial this morning (Friday).
They Key Stage 2 children have been learning about World War 1 and they also read poems that they had written themselves and laid wreaths they have made. Key Stage 1 and Foundation Stage children also participated in a Remembrance Service at school.
All children in the school made a poppy, Class 5 children researched those on Bicker War Memorial who died in WW1 and made a poppy with their names on and Class 4 wrote poems on their poppies.
Two Year 6 girls raised £150 for the Royal British Legion by making felt poppies which they sold to children and parents.
Headteacher Julie Miles said: "The children have been interested to learn about such an important historical event and were keen to mark the 100th anniversary in a significant way. We are extremely proud of them all."
