Remembrance Day Parade in Walsall 

Children visited the church memorial and laid a wreath of poppies to remember the fallen.  They  read a poem and the video and words are found below.

In Flanders Fields by John McCrae, May 1915. 

In Flanders Fields

     

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the  crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The Larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

~~~~~

We are the Dead.  Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

~~~~~

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.

        

 

by John McCrae, May 1915

MAKING DENS

BUSY BEE WORKSHOPS  

As part of our science work, pupils took part in workshops with a real life professional bee keeper!  The pupils were able to view the bees through an enclosed glass viewing hive.
 

Why are bees so important to our food chain?
 

What would life be like without bees?
