Deerplay Remembrance Service

On Friday 11th November, pupils in years 4,5 and 6 shared in Bacup Rotary Club's annual Service of Remembrance at Deerplay War Memorial. As always they were a credit to school and their parents. This year was made even more special as it was broadcast by Radio Lancashire. Work written by the year 6 children was read out throughout the radio programme and then the Remembrance service was aired. If you would like to listen to the radio programme you can follow the link on the 'Useful links' tab of the website. The service was also streamed on the Radio Lancashire Facebook page. The comments from members of the public who listened to the radio programme or watched the live streaming of the service are testimony to how amazing the children at Northern are. During the Remembrance Service some of the Year 5 and Year 6 children used sign language to share the poem 'Flanders Fields' by John McCrae - a huge thank you to Miss Scott for teaching them this.
