PUPILS at Chard Preparatory School held a Remembrance Service last Thursday (November 11).

The service, held in the Chapel at the school, included poetry, readings, music and tales of family war memories.

Year six children read out the names of Old Cerdics from the school, who lost their lives.

At 11am, the school came together in the playground for a two-minute silence.

Younger pupils at the school also took part in activities to commemorate Remembrance. 

They learnt about the meaning of the day and then made hand print poppy badges, finger print wreaths, silhouette sun catchers and a poppy biscuits.

Headteacher, Katie Hill, said: “It was lovely to see our youngest pupils so engaged in these activities and beginning to understand the importance of Remembrance.”
