Remembrance Day 2016

Class: Year 4J Year: 2016 - 2017

 

On 11th November at 11am we held a Remembrance Assembly so we could remember all those who have died, especially in wars. The Year 6 children had made poppy wreaths and we all listened to some poems, prayed and had a two minute silence.

 

We were very lucky to have Mr Murray lead our 2 minute silence by playing the 'Last Post' on the cornet. The "Last Post" is a cavalry trumpet call used in military funerals and ceremonies commemorating those who have been killed in war. He then finished the two minute silence by playing 'Reveille'. The two tunes symbolise sunset and sunrise respectively, and therefore, death and resurrection. Thank you Mr Murray!
