Year 6 with their parents during the Liturgy

On Thursday 16th November Year 6 invited their parents into school to share their Remembrance Liturgy.

The children were invited to bring in objects which reminded them of loved ones who are now with Jesus in heaven to create a lovely display around the tree of remembrance.
