BRIGSTOCK REMEMBERS: DAY 10, SEPTEMBER-DECEMBER 2018
Our new Day 10 unit will focus on the importance of remembering the past as well as looking forward to the future. At the heart will be the commemoration of 100 years since the end of World War 1, and we have planned a number of activities to focus on the importance of remembering both within and beyond our own lives.
All children will experience seven activities linked to the central theme of remembering, culminating in a Tea Dance to celebrate the homecoming of soldiers for Christmas. The village and church communities will be invited to join us for this event on December 5th, and we will also link this event to the opening of our Advent Window which forms a part of the Brigstock Living Advent.
Over the coming weeks you will be able to see the progress of our poppy field, commemorating 100 years since the end of World War 1. Our Art Club have made the soldiers, expertly guided by Anabel. The leaves of our poppies contain messages and memories, many of them linked to the impact of war-time within our own families. We hope you enjoy sharing this special display at the front of the school. It will continue to grow right up until November 11th.
We are also proudly raising money through the sale of beautifully knitted and crocheted poppies.
Thank you again to Isabelle’s nana who has made over 100 poppies, and has raised over £100 already. Issy has also crocheted poppies, and we are so proud that we have raised money for such a worthy cause.
We thank everyone who has contributed to our meaningful and thought-provoking Remembrance commemorations.
We all enjoyed celebrating Harvest Festival with all of our children and parents. As well as sharing songs and prayers, we also had some wonderful contributions of food and produce that we took round the village to share with the local residents. We have received so many warm messages about these food parcels…
“Thank you to everyone at school for the beautiful Harvest Gift”
“What a lovely surprise when I arrived back from shopping to find a bag of Harvest gifts. I was so thrilled to receive them and thank you all so much for delivering them to me…”
“Thank you so much for the Harvest Box and I so enjoyed the Harvest Service today.”
Thank you to everyone who supported our school event.
