What a wonderful bunch of All Sorters! We had a very special theme this month where we learnt about Remembrance and the brave people who fought for our freedom. We acted out the first Remembrance Service with the King, soldiers and crowds - the clock struck 11 and we all stood in silence and then laid poppy wreaths on our ‘cenotaph’. We also had fun making poppies, brooches and peg soldiers. At the end of the session all the children were given a very special advent calendar
We hosted a wonderful indoor street party yesterday to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1. There was a fantastic exhibition by Cottingley History Society about local men who fought in the War, and a fabulous display of artwork by the children of Cottingley Village Primary School. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
