Kiddy Cook continues to be a great success with the children. They have all looked very pleased with themselves taking home their ready to cook treats.
The Year 3 and 4 classes took it in turns to visit the Brecon War Museum this week. On arrival they were met by Mrs Holcroft who was ready to start the children’s evacuee experience. After a chat about World War 2 the children entered the drama room which was sectioned into different areas. They moved around the room in groups enjoying the Parlour, The shop and the Air Raid Wardens office. The children got the opportunity to dress up in war time clothes which helped them really get into their parts. After lunch the children went outside and entered the air raid shelter 6 at a time. Again they had a full experience and imagined how cramped and dark it would have been. I think its safe to say all the children and staff had a fantastic time.
On Monday 11th November 2019 the we remembered those who gave their lives during war. The Remembrance service at The Plough Chapel was led by pupils where we shared our understanding, thoughts and feelings with the congregation.
The Plough chapel was adorned with poppies. Each of us had the opportunity to create
a poppy in memory of a hero who lost his or her life during past and present wars. The poppies were made from recycled bottles. The bottom of each bottle was transformed into a beautiful poppy which added to the atmosphere in the chapel. It was a very moving service for all and was lovely to receive the following comment after the service:
“I have just attended your memorial service in the Plough Chapel. I served for 30 years in The Royal Air Force and took part in many Remembrance parades and services during my career. Today’s led by the children was the most moving I can remember.
Huge congratulations to staff and most of all the children.”
