During the week building up to Remembrance Sunday our students took part in a variety of activities to raise money for the British Legion and remember the sacrifice people made for us in the First and Second War.
Mrs Greening’s Year 7 History group learnt about the importance and significance of the poppy and then created their own whilst reflecting on the bravery and courage of our soldiers who have died in a line of duty since WW1. The red poppies are a significant symbol of this day as they were the first flower to grow from the Battlefields and graves of soldiers.
Mrs Greening said,
“The concept of war can be incredibly heavy for children and difficult for them to comprehend, but the poppy can be a great place to start.”
Mrs Paretta’s form in Year 8 (8S1) volunteered to sell poppies around school during BGS time. The group did a great job and their efforts were greatly appreciated.< Back to all news stories
