Children at Beoley First pay their tribute to those in the Armed Forces

Correspondent 25th Nov, 2018

CHILDREN at Beoley First School discovered all about past and present family members who fought or are still serving in the Armed Forces.

As part of the school’s Remembrance Day project a service was held to think about them and they also discussed and remembered members of the Beoley community who had fought in the two world wars.

The children demonstrated respect with a two minutes’ silence and by creating a whole school field of poppies using their fingerprints.

Katie Sweeney, deputy head said: “The children demonstrated an impressive level of maturity and we’re fascinated to learn about each other’s family members as well as members of our community.

“We have recently been discussing respect as one of our school values and the children showed a fantastic understanding of this.”
