On Friday 10th November 2023, the staff and children at Drove paid their respects for Remembrance Day.
KS1 and KS2 made a human poppy with Sam and Shanaya beautifully reading "The shall not grow old". We held a 2-minute silence to show our respect and gratitude to the armed forces past and present.
