At Orchard Infant School we will be remembering all those who fought for their country, those who died and those who came home.


As a school community we all have a connection to someone who has given their lives to ensure we can live in peace and happiness. 


For this reason we will be celebrating Remembrance Day at 11am on the 11/11/20 where a 2 minutes silence will be respected for the fallen.


Our children will learn the importance of Remembrance Day and will create a poppy display in our school hall in honour of all service men and women past and present. 


Lest we forget. 

We would love to hear any family history linked to Remembrance Day for the children.

This will be shared with their class on Wednesday as part of our Remembrance Day service in school. Please head to Google Classroom for more information.

Art inspired by our field trip to Lepe beach.

Did you know there was so much to discover on our field trip to Lepe Country Park. We spotted lots of physical features like the ocean and beach.

Our virtual flight to new Zealand was such fun and launched our new project...Land of the Long White Cloud.
