Pupils at the Assessment and Reintegration Centre (ARC) have been engaged in a variety of activities which focus on the commemoration and remembrance ceremonies taking place this week.
Today Armistice Day 11/11/2014 KS3 pupils and staff from the ARC took part in an act of remembrance.
At 11.00 am, a 2 minute silence was observed impeccably by pupils in the ARC, whilst other pupils and staff attended the remembrance service at the War Memorial in Formby Village.
Throughout this week cross curricular activities have take place during lessons in English and Food Tech. Food Tech pupils were asked to research popular types of produce used in a cooking and diet in 1914, and to select and produced a traditional 1914 recipe using some of this produce.
