Year 2 Remembrance Visit

We learnt all about Remembrance and wrote our own prayers. On Friday we walked up to the memorial in Great Preston to have our own little service. The children read out their thoughtful prayers, we laid the wreath that Mason's Mummy had kindly brought for us and then held the minutes silence. Just before our journey back we left our Poppy prayers around the memorial for others to see.
