Yesterday, Year 4 were visited by Becky from West End of schools. She taught us lots about Poppies and Poems. We know that this year Remembrance Sunday is extra special because it marks 100 years since the end of the First World War in 1918.
We learnt all about recruitment and how soldiers were enlisted to fight in the war.
Here are some pictures from the morning:
