Remembrance Day

On Friday 10th November, Herons and Kestrels went to Adlington St Paul's Church to take part in a Remembrance Day Service with other local schools.

The children participated in a number of songs of remembrance and Herons performed a short poem to remember those that sacrificed their lives. 

They then visited the memorial to lay wreaths and take part in a 2 minute silence. 

All the children were incredibly well behaved and respectful throughout the morning and were a credit to themselves and the school.
