Children and staff recognised the importance of remembering the soldiers past and present and the vital need to hand down modern history to the next generation.

Pupils at Newton Tony C of E Primary School held a Remembrance Service at St. Andrews Church yesterday, Thursday, November 8.

A variety of WW1 activities throughout the day included ‘a day in the trenches’, drama role-play, and baking a trench cake.

Children and staff dressed up in WW1 attire in remembrance of the bravery and courage those who died for our freedom.

Head boy James said: “It made me feel grateful that we are learning about what people did for us 100 years ago and thankful that we don’t live with war in this country.”

On Monday, November 12, the school joins in a two-minute silence.

The chair of PTA will plant a tree in memory of the WW1 centenary, alongside a soldier made from hazel and a wooden memorial cross to create a new memorial area at the front of the school.
