Reporters - Skye and Kelvin
On Thursday 24th May 2019, Year 6 children travelled to Ypres, in Belgium to lay a wreath at the Menin Gate for all the unknown soldiers that sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
Ruqqayah, Jobelle and Kelvin showed incredible respect and reverence as they were chosen to lay the wreath. They were the youngest there and showed amazing maturity.
This incredible and moving event ended a day’s long travel to the trenches and the Tyne Cot Cemetery where there lay dead the bones of thousands of soldiers.
This enriched the children’s understanding of the sacrifice people made in order to give all people the opportunities that they have today.
