Haughton School

Haughton School Remembers

Thank you to everyone who donated to our poppy appeal to help raise funds for the Royal British Legion.

In school this week have been finding out about Remembrance Day. Children have been learning about why Remembrance Day is important and how it is commemorated.  We have been talking about how we can remember and show our respect and gratitude to the armed forces past and present who have lost their lives fighting for their country.

This morning a group of children walked up to the Madeley War Memorial to take part in a Schools Remembrance Service. Children observed a two minute silence and placed a wreath which had been made in school.  We are very proud of the children who represented Haughton School so beautifully.

This afternoon we came together for a whole school Remembrance Assembly.  We watched a short film about why we wear poppies, observed a two-minute silence and we said a prayer to remember those who lived and died in the service of others.

Well done everyone.


Class 6 children created this beautiful window display.

Children in Class 1 made some lovely handprint poppies to display in their window.
