Meet in the park!
A New Way of Remembering - Beatrix Potter Primary School, Wandsworth

Year 2 children used the support of the Project to learn more about World War I and Remembrance Day.  Their school stands directly opposite Wandsworth Cemetery.  Because there was a hospital nearby, which took injured soldiers from the Front in 1916, there are a number of Australian, Canadian and New Zealand soldiers buried in the cemetery.

The children visited the cemetery, learned about the symbols to be found on many of the tombstones, and took rubbings of many of the regimental badges, and the names of the soldiers, to take back to school for display.

Reading the names and ages on the tombstones made them all realise how young many soldiers were, and understand the sacrifices made by so many people in war.
