Primary were thrilled to be invited to Bill Quay Farm to join in their Remembrance Day service. Staff at the farm told us that our pupils were chosen because they always show respect, empathy and kindness towards others when completing our weekly Forest School sessions there. 
Pupils used their questioning skills to learn new facts from re-enactment staff, all pupils took turns to speak and listened attentively to their friends’ questions and the answers. Some of our pupils were given a demonstration from a volunteer of the equipment used during World War I.They learnt that the webbing was originally made out of leather but was changed in 1908!
Pupils listened respectfully to the Remembrance service alongside another school, and observed a two minute silence at 11 o’clock perfectly. During the silence,  pupils later told teachers that they had thought about all the people in the Armed Forces who have fought in conflicts around the world, in the past and today.
All of our pupils listened to the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae then placed our poems, pictures and poppy stones around the cross in the wood as a mark of respect.
Please let us know if you visit the farm and see our work there.
