Pupils at Carr Manor Community School have been paying tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Battle Of The Somme in a number of different ways.
From Sunday 13th March – Wednesday 16th March, three Year 8 pupils went on a Centenary Battlefield Tour, where they had the unique opportunity to travel to the Somme to commemorate the battlefield site and other sites in France and Belgium.
This was a very insightful opportunity for the pupils as they had the opportunity to interact with a variety of different historic sites, including battlefields, memorials, cemeteries and museums. They also participated in a remembrance ceremony.
Pupils also honoured the anniversary by creating poppies in their History lesson, which were displayed in the Leeds City Museum exhibition ‘In Their Footsteps.’ There was also a planting of poppies in our Primary Phase gardens where pupils read out a poem to remember those who served in the first World War.
