14th November 2016

On Friday 11th November, children across Rushbrook Primary Academy participated in a history day to celebrate and remember all those who had lost their lives in a war. At 11 am all children showed their respect by conducting a two minutes silence.  Throughout the day all classes undertook lots of exciting activities, Y1 made beautiful poppy hats, Y2 experienced a real life trench, Y4 learnt about evacuated children’s experience of the war by making evacuee tags and they watched some cartoons that children would have watched at the cinema in ww2 and year 5 performed some very sincere war poetry. All children made their own poppies in the afternoon, which class teachers turned into a class wreath. The wreaths will be on display in school this week! Everyone had lots of fun learning about the history of remembrance day.
