Armed Forces Day is an opportunity for people across the UK to show their support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community; from currently serving troops, to Service families, veterans, and cadets. Nursery and Pre-Prep were thrilled to have some visitors from ‘1st Queen’s Dragoon Guards’ to mark the occasion.
The children listened intently and asked some insightful questions to find out more about life as serving personnel. The children had a fantastic time exploring and interacting with some military equipment that had been brought in for us. The children got to sit inside a truck, try on helmets and backpacks, as well as pretend to be out in the field with walkie talkie headsets!
Esmie S (Wrens, Reception) said, “It was great. We went in the front of an army car.” While Sam N (Owls, Reception) said, “I loved going in the truck. I loved the camera; I could see the fields.”
Mila T (Hawks, Year 2) said, “I enjoyed making the tyres deflate and inflate when I pressed a button.” Gabriella H (Crows, Year 2) said, “It was funny when I zoomed the camera on top of the truck onto Mrs Skipper!”
All the pupils, staff, and families of Nursery and Pre-Prep want to say a huge thank you to those who came in to show us a bit about their world, as well as for all the work and dedication that they and their colleagues give to us every day.
