Lest we forget…

At IES Breckland we will be commemorating the Centenary of the end of WW1 on Friday 9th November with a series of activities in school to help remember those who fought and died in conflict. In Mentor students will explore in depth a new word that is connected to remembrance, by looking at where it comes from, what it means and the synonyms and antonyms it has. In lessons all day there will be a remembrance theme across all subject areas, where students will then be immersed in a integrated focus for their education on this day. At 11 am all staff and students will be engaging in a 2 minute silence to allow students to reflect fully on the sacrifices made, and during the final lesson of the day all Year 7 and 8 students will be involved in a hour long Remembrance event ranging from Poetry readings, looking at Brandon in WW1 and the laying of student made poppies. IES Breckland remembers the sacrifices made by those of the past and present to protect the future.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
