Kirkcolm Primary Remember


This morning Danny, Robert and Mr MacGregor, armed with willow, a hot glue gun and string banded together to create a wreath for Kirkcolm’s memorial. Despite their lack of prior experience I personally think they did a very impressive job! Even Mr MacGregor was stunned with his new talent and has plans to trim his own willow dome at home for more wreaths! Primary 5 – 7 coloured in some nice, bright poppies to add to our wreath too. 
We took a walk up to the monument after breaktime to pay our respects and lay our wreath. We did a minute’s silence then we spoke about why it’s important to remember this date each year and how thankful we are to all of the servicemen/ women who have fought in every war around the world, even the one’s of today. 
We also spoke about the symbol on the purple poppy and the boys are girls were able to explain that this represents the thanks we pay to the animals who die in war as well as men and women.
