Wood Bay Remembrance Service
Posted: Jan 31, 2020 by: jayne.peacock on: Learning Blog
At 11am on 11th November, our Key Stage 2 children marked Remembrance Day with a service at Woody Bay Train Station. The engine, Axe, provided the poignant backdrop for our service whilst our children read poems that that they had written about war and loss. As the Reveille broke our silence, our children placed poppy crosses into the garden of remembrance, many thinking about family members who served in the World Wars and subsequent wars around the world. As our service concluded, our children enjoyed a ride on the railway whilst contemplating the part that Axe played on the frontline and how the tranquillity of the Exmoor landscape today contrasts so greatly to the scenes of WWI that they can only imagine. Thank you to everyone who joined us at this service, to Rev’d Samantha for leading service and to all at Woody Bay for enabling us to mark Remembrance in such a special way.
