The children and staff of Bede Burn Primary School joined people across our country today as we took part in the 2 minute silence at 11 o’clock. Children, teachers, teaching partners, admin staff and kitchen staff observed the commemoration to remember those who had made the ultimate sacrifice.

During the weeks before Remembrance Day, our children have been able to share stories from their own families, and we have created our own Remembrance display with poppies in the windows of our school. Each child in school was able to contribute to this with some writing messages for family members.
