Remembrance Service Led by Swallows 11/11/2019

Picture 1

The children worked hard preparing to lead the Remembrance Service this year. They looked at texture and created red and black paper to create their own poppies as well as a wreath for the church display.  We spent some time learning about the symbolism of a poppy and why they are worn in a certain position. 

As a class they adapted a poem called A Candle by Saadi Youseff and wrote some of the lines differently to make it fit with Remembrance day. The poem can be found below. I am sure anyone that joined us at the Service will agree the children read beautifully and did Yattendon proud!



A Candle

A candle for the soldiers


A candle for the families


A candle for the children


A candle for the animals


A candle for the doctors and nurses.


A candle for the wounded


A candle for the pain.


A candle for the frontline


A candle for the home front.


A candle for the broadcasters in a shelter


A candle for a fresh water.


A candle for the air


A candle for change.


A candle for the beginning


A candle for the end


A candle for conscience


A candle in my hand
