Year 5 "adopt" a grave

As part of the Centenary Remembrance in the school, Year 5 has ‘adopted’ the graves of four servicemen whose names appear on our war memorial. The graves are located in Teddington cemetery in Shacklegate Lane.


Throughout the year groups of children from Year Five will be responsible for looking after the graves. This will involve general tidying up, weeding and planting bulbs and flowers.


Year 5 tended the graves for Remembrance Day before returning to school in time for the two minutes silence around the memorial. You can see from the pictures below what a good job Year 5 has done!
