A personal link in Remembrance

A member of Form 5 shared with the class her journey to a war memorial in Ypres.

With the start of a new half term, the children were excited to tell the rest of the class what they had been getting up to over the recent holidays.

While many had ventured on traditional breaks to other parts of the country or further afield, one member of class had travelled to Ypres in Belgium to find out more about her great-great grandfather.

She travelled to the Menin Gate to find the place where her forebear has his name, with many of the other fallen soldiers from the First World War.

As a class, we spoke about this in a poignant discussion which connected with this week's 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War.
