Pupils remember British war heroes

CHILDREN at Burrington Primary School paid their respects to British servicemen last week with a special Armistice Day service.

A wreath was laid in memory of soldiers killed and the standard lowered for the two minutes silence at 11am.

The children have been learning about Armistice Day in class and year two pupils read the remembrance poems they had written after the service.

And all the children enjoyed Jelly Babies after the service because when they were first produced in 1918 they were called Peace Babies to mark the end of the First World War.
