Students from across the region remembered the fallen on Remembrance Day in a range of ways including attending local services, wearing their service uniforms to class and making poppies.

Pupils from Horsford C of E VA Primary School visited David Wilson Homes' Kingfisher Meadow development in Horsford to bury present day mementos for future residents to discover. The time capsule buried by students will be opened by residents at the development in 40 years time. The children had placed a range of different items in the time capsule to show future residents what life was like in 2019, including letters and a school fleece.

Reception children at Toftwood Infant School have been learning about birthdays. They heard about Olive, from Great Yarmouth, who is turning 104 years old and wished to receive pictures from children around the local area. The children thought about what Olive would like to see on her birthday drawings and they learnt how to write the number 104. They sent the photos in the post to Olive.
