PUPILS at a school in Ilminster managed to take part in two events despite coronavirus restrictions.

Greenfylde First School showed their respects for Remembrance Day by taking part in a socially distanced memorial service and laying a wreath.

Claire Oaten, headteacher, said: “Year 4’s continued their annual tradition of joining the service at the memorial at The Minster, this year remaining in the school grounds socially distanced.

“Children in Key Stage 2 thought about what Remembrance meant for them and shared their thoughts through poetry and art work that was displayed around the boundary of the school for all in the community.

“Finally, a pupil from a forces family represented the Greenfylde Community when they went to quietly lay their wreath at The Minster to remember how much many have given for our lives today.”

They also held a non-uniform day to support Children In Need and the students managed to raise more than £150.

Pupils also witnessed a socially distanced “bear convention” when Pudsey met Sunny Ile Ted – the mascot of two local pre-schools.

“Children in Need brought out the joy at Greenfylde First School and their pre-schools Sunny Ile and Cygnets last Friday (November 13) when children and staff had a non-uniform day with the theme 'wear something bright and cheerful' to support the charity,” Ms Oaten added.
