We have been thinking about Remembrance Day this week. On Sunday lots of us were at the War Memorial and we laid the wreath.
In Art P1 - 3 have done some great watercolour paintings and P4 - 7 made poppies to add to the display.
P4 - 7 have been using the song "Where have all the flowers gone?" as a stimulus in Philosophy. The question we chose to speak about was "What is the meaning of the song?" and we have been thinking in particular about World War 2 and its impact. We have now moved on to think about what would have been different if we could time travel and alter the course of history. What do you think?
Jim Hepburn was 11 at the outbreak of World War 2 and he came in to school to share his memories of living in Shapinsay during the war. It was really interesting learning about what it was like then, and we all consider ourselves very lucky to be living in Shapinsay now rather than during wartime.
We all took part in the 2 minutes silence on the 11th November at 11 a.m.
