The Games of Remembrance

Thursday 8th November 2018

To continue our week of marking the centenary of the First World War, Key Stage Two attended the Games of Remembrance today. One hundred and twenty children, staff and parent helpers left the village on two coaches to travel to Notts County Football Ground at Meadow Lane to watch the Women’s British Army Football Team play the German Bundeswehr Women’s Armed Forces Football Team.

The children had a brilliant time, first watching the Military Band and Military Wives Choir, followed by an extremelly close football match. Germany took the lead with a goal in the first half, followed by another at the start of the second half. It was however, a very closely faught game and England managed to narrow the score line with a goal in the last minutes. The final score was 2:1 to Germany.
