Month of November

poppy
During the month of November we devote our thoughts and our prayer time to the Holy Souls who have left their mark on us and how we live our lives today.
As a mark of respect and in remembrance of those who died for us and our country during the First World War,  a beautiful art installation was created around the Tower of London as ‘blood swept lands and seas of red…’
 
In 2014 it marked 100 hundred years from the first day of WWI as 1st August 1914 which was fought hard by British soldiers in order to make our lives better.   
The art piece, by two artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper,  contained 888,246 ceramic poppies in remembrance of each soldier who gave up their lives for us and remarkably  one of our parents, Mrs Sanders, secured one for our school and for that we are grateful.
 
The poppy will be placed in the reception foyer throughout the month of November and the children will be given a chance to look at it closely and to pay their respects to all who have died and gone before us.  Please take time to stop awhile and pray for those who continue to give up their lives from all faiths around the world in a desperate bid to make the world in which we live, the place our children will live in and love in knowing God is standing right beside them.
