To honour the centenary of the end of the First World War, next half term we will be learning all about Remembrance Day and what it means to us. As it is such an important historical event, all year groups will have topic and English lessons focussed around the First World War. We are lucky enough to begin the second half of our autumn term with an assembly led by members of the British Legion. Following on from this, on Thursday 8th November, we will be remembering all the people who have served and who currently serve our country, marked by a gathering in the school playground from 10.40am. The Middleton choir will be singing a Remembrance Song, there will be some poetry readings from children in Years 5 and 6 and a two minute silence at 11am ending with a Last Post trumpet solo. Families are very welcome to attend. We are hoping to make this a memorable day for the children so we will be decorating the lunch halls with Wartime posters and bunting. Finally, on Friday 9th November, students in our school council will represent Middleton Primary School in a Remembrance Day Parade organised by the British Legion specifically for schools across Milton Keynes.
