The theme November for Year of Oscar Romero is Remembrance – based around Remembrance Sunday. We discussed what Remembrance Sunday was about and why we mark the occasion. The Year 6 children have been helping to sell poppies all week and we discussed how the poppy has become the symbol for Remembrance Sunday.
The children then completed an activity: doing an outline of their own hands and cutting out on red paper. They wrote prayers on these hands and then we put them all together to form a giant poppy. This poppy was used in whole school collective worship on Friday afternoon. We finished by praying together and hoping for an end to bloodshed and war.
