Pegasus Students Remember the Fallen

Remembrance day

During Remembrance week, Pegasus students engaged in activities to begin to learn about Remembrance Day; why, what and how we remember. In preparation the students learned that the poppy is a symbol of Remembrance and began to understand the reasons why the poppy is used in this way.  One Student made a wreath using cardboard, string, paint and used fabric to make the poppies. One Student used cardboard to make the wreath shape. He used white, green and red fabric to cover the circular shape. One Student collected spruce from the woods to make her wreath. Using a wreath ring she wound the spruce through the frame and attached material poppies to it. Students made poppies for and students to wear as a symbol of remembrance to wear during Remembrance Week. At 11am on Monday 11th November students held a minutes silence to remember those who have given their lives in conflicts. A wreath was laid on the turning circle, as students watched, in an act of remembrance.

Students visited The National Memorial Arboretum. Students placed either a Remembrance Cross or Wreath at a Memorial of their choice as a mark of respect and remembrance.
