Theme Week – 100 Year Armistice Anniversary

The William Amory Primary School and Nursery commemorated the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice – which recognised the significance of the end of the First World War, and the sacrifice made by so many men and women during the war.

Over the course of the theme week, the children took part in a wide variety of activities. We had Officer Miller from @armywestmidlands (https://www.facebook.com/ArmyWestMidlands/) come in to give a talk about how the army was during the First World War and how it is today. We had a selection of army vehicles on the playground (thanks to Mr Herdman for arranging the visit, Foxfield and the Historical Vehicles Association) for the children to look at. The children created a wide variety of poppies for our own displays and also for Leveson Wood to contribute to the poppy display outside St. Peter’s church. The display looks absolutely fantastic and we are ever so proud to have helped with the creation of such a beautiful memorial. A beautiful and delicious cake was created by one of our parents.

Have a look at extensive photos below to see what the children have been up to all over the school.
