Our first National Commemoration Days were launched in 4 schools to 1000 children. Students participated in art workshops, learning First World War songs, meeting an Indian Soldier costumed interpreter and exploring artefacts. The days culminated in moving commemoration services bringing together all the activities from the day including laying poppy wreaths and placing newly made medals onto barbed wire in remembrance alongside army drill and songs.
The team were amazing, helping the children explore each activity and the range of sessions gave each child an opportunity to play to their strengths. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves
As always with HMDT Music, it was thoughtful and meaningful and gave us all a lot to think about
The WW1 workshop day was very interesting and the artefacts were really unique. It was a once in a life experience
I really enjoyed the singing workshop because the warm up and songs were fun and catchy
The best day in Year 5!
I was looking forward to it all week but it was even better than I thought it would be!
