Remembrance Assembly 2019

On Thursday the 7th November Silverhill School celebrated Remembrance Day in honour of all those soldiers who died to save our countries from destruction. Year 6 collectively lead the assembly and shared speeches and poems. On the day, everybody was spoke clearly and inspired many children to appreciate what soldiers do for our country.

Year 6 children were paired up to recite the reflective poems which they had written themselves. They were about poppies, loss and a soldier’s experience on the battlefield. We all sung two hymns and had a very influential two minutes of silence. Mrs Conner played a beautiful song on her bugle. Everyone was very emotional and some even cried as Jessica recited a prayer to all of Silverhill School and parents. To end the beautiful ceremony, there was a respectful round of applause, in recognition of the soldiers who have died and the effort year 6 children had made in preparing for the assembly.
