We remember them
Today Year 6 made silhouettes for the fallen during WW1. We studied and annotated the poem by Laurence Binyon looking at the language and meaning behind it. We finished by writing and composing our own Ode to the fallen by using some of his words and our own which were inspired by his poem. It was a really productive morning- Art, ICT and Poetry . Brilliant work Year 6 .
