Lest We Forget

On the eleventh day of the eleventh month at the eleventh minute, World War One ended. This year we are remembering that it is one hundred years since the end of the First World War. 

We remember with thanksgiving and sorrow, those whose lives have been given and taken away because of war. We want to say thank you for their commitment and dedication - that they were prepared to leave their friends and families to protect others. 

We also want to say thank you to the unseen heroes; the wives and children, the mums and dad, the grandmas and grandads, who were left to look after the home and take on the jobs that the men had done.

Thank you for our freedom.

We will remember.


 

What the war means to me - by T Stronach - Year 5

The deafening sound of the battle field.

Soldiers marching without a shield.

The soldiers scared from head to toe,

Walking through trenches with nowhere to go.

 

The sky as dark as dust.

The soldiers never knew who to trust.

The trenches buried beneath the grass.

Soldiers sprinting, scared of gas.

 

The ground as dry as a desert floor.

The medics didn't want to treat any more.

Soldiers lying lifeless on the ground.

People running all around.

 

Some lucky soldiers went home to their wives,

Whilst others laid in fields losing their lives.

For those who died we fall silent and remember,

Every year on the 11th of November

Brayton will remember

We are all having a thought provoking week, learning about Remembrance and studying the reasons behind our 'Poignant Poppy Day' tomorrow when we will be joined by Parish Councillors on the green for an act of Remembrance.This year is even more poignant as it marks 100 years since

the end of the first world war.
