Church of England Junior School

Holocaust Memorial Day

St Mary's came together to remember the Holocaust as part of Holocaust Memorial Day 2024

Holocaust Memorial day is on 27th January every year and here at St Mary's we believe it is important to look at age appropriate books to teach the children about prejudice. During the week, the children will explore an appropriate book about The Holocaust and complete some work based on it. 

In addition to this, the whole school Act of Worship discussed the theme of 'Fragility of Freedom' and we considered how important freedom is and how at times it can be taken away. We learnt about Anne Frank's freedom and the power of her diary. 

Below is the PowerPoint of this first Act of Worship this week..
