REMEMBRANCE WEEK

Rayne Primary School pupils experienced an educational and engaging Remembrance Week in the run up to Remembrance Sunday, commemorating those very brave souls, many of whom paid the ultimate price, for the freedoms we enjoy today.  One of the main aims of the week was to ensure the children understood the past and the significant role Rayne played in the history of WW1. This has been achieved and so much more. The school has been drawn closer to the community which is a very positive outcome and one which would not have been possible without the effort and time given by so many. I would like to thank all those who have volunteered throughout the week to share their knowledge and skills with the children. The staff have also shown such dedication to ensuring the week was informative and enjoyable. Special thanks to Mrs White who has overseen and co-ordinated all of the events.

The unique wreath was the idea of our art co-ordinator Mrs Laban.  Each class created their individual poppy using beads and wire and this was put together to form the wreath as a token of remembrance from our school.
