Arundel Court Primary Academy in Portsmouth laid wreaths as part of their tribute to those who died in the First World War. The school held a remembrance assembly on Friday morning. Some of the Year 6 children read poems which they had written and Father Marcus led the pupils in prayer and remembrance. Deputy headteacher Rob Jones said: ‘Each class made a wreath and laid it in our school hall. ‘We then had a two-minute silence to show our respect. It was lovely to see that even children as young as five understood why we choose to wear a poppy with one little boy saying “It makes me feel better wearing a poppy because I don't like fighting".’

On Sunday, Mr Parrott, with the head boy & head girl, attended the remembrance service to lay a wreath on behalf of Arundel Court.
