Bedford pre-schoolers remember the real ‘Super heroes’
As nations remembered the fallen soldiers of two world wars, children in Lavenders Day Nursery in Bedford paid their own tribute to their ‘Real Superheroes’.
A crafted poppy wreath with simple poem was laid at the Bedford War Memorial by pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day nursery in Bushmead Avenue as part of their Remembrance Day activities.
As Jessica D’Arcy, Lavenders Deputy Manager, explained the visit was part of on-going themed activities which celebrate the work of real ‘Superheroes’ working in the armed forces, the police, and ambulance services.
“We focus on how lucky we are to have people who will put themselves in harm’s way for us. This is particularly important around Remembrance Sunday when we honour the real superheroes, our brave soldiers, who have died protecting us,” she said.
Following activities like looking at the significance of, and meaning behind, the red poppy, preschool children and staff made their pilgrimage to the memorial to honour the fallen.
