Portpatrick Pupils Respect Remembrance Day

The pupils of Portpatrick Primary have been very motivated to mark the occasion of Remembrance Day, as we do each year.

The children have been selling poppies in school to raise funds for this worthwhile cause.

Both classes have been learning about Remembrance day through presentations and discussion.  They understand the sacrifice that has been made by men and women of yesterday and today to protect our freedom.

The upper class made a wreath with Kim .  This was constructed by reusing the bottoms of plastic drinks bottles to reduce waste and fixing them to chicken wire as a frame.  The plastic bottles were spray painted red by Kim to look like poppies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The whole school walked up to the village war memorial on the 11th of November to lay the wreath and and recite a poem as a mark of respect.

The children observed the minute’s silence to pay tribute to those who have sacrificed for us.

Lest We Forget.
