‘At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.’

The children of 4LJ led a very poignant and moving service of Remembrance on Wednesday 10th November. They thought about what the word ‘ remembrance’ actually means, and why Armistice Day is such an important event in our calendar.
‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae was recited by the children with such understanding and expression, as was part of Laurence Binyon’s ‘For the Fallen.’

The children also heard that even though it would have been incredibly difficult and frightening being at war, there are many stories from the battlefields of hope and peace, where God was clearly with the soldiers, giving them strength, protection and hope.

Mrs James was very proud of how well every child played their part in the service, and Krish summed up the feelings of the whole form when he said, “I feel so honoured that Mrs. Drake asked 4LJ to lead this special assembly.”
