Year 6 Pupils from Marish and St Mary’s Primary Schools took part in a recreation of the ‘1914 Christmas Truce’. The schools came together to exchange wreaths and recite poems about this unique day in history.
Pupils were inspired by the Sainsburys TV advert as well as other celebrations up and down the country.
