Christ The King Catholic Primary School Learning, growing and praying together with Christ Our King


Today we remembered all those who have died in the War and those who are continuing to die every day in wars around the world. The children from KS1 came up to KS2 for a very special service. Father Tom and Father Andrew came too. Father Tom started off by reading the very famous poem 'Flanders Field.' Some children then placed their poppy wreaths and photographs by the statue of Our Lady. Children from Year 5 and 6 read some famous poems and a couple that they had written themselves. One child from each class in KS2 read a bidding prayer. We listened to the Last Post which led us into the two minute silence, it was so quiet. Father then read a short prayer which led him into the blessings of the poppies. Every child in KS2 made a clay poppy which were painted red and black, KS1 children made the poppy wreaths. It looked amazing! To finish our service we sang Abide with Me. This was a very moving service which really helped the children to understand the great importance of this special day.
