Holocaust Memorial Day
Last Friday, some of the year 6 children took part in a special event at East Ham Town Hall - the Holocaust Memorial Day. The event commemorated the 6 million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, alongside the millions of other people killed under Nazi persecution of other groups, and in more recent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
Children have learnt that each year across the UK, thousands of people come together to learn more about the past and take action to create a safer future.
'I have really enjoyed the trip, so memorable and touching,' said Joshua.
