Reconciliation Sculptures

Thursday, 23 October 2014

Today Mrs Haughey and I both walked in to Year 6 and were truly impressed. I knew straight away without being told what it was they had been asked to re-create – the Reconciliation sculpture to be found in the old Coventry Cathedral. The inscription on which says
“In 1995 fifty years after the end of the Second World War this sculpture has been given as a token of reconciliation, an identical sculpture has been placed on behalf of the people of Coventry in the Peace Garden, Hiroshima, Japan
Both sculptures remind us that in the face of destruction forever human dignity and love will triumph over disaster and bring nations together in respect and peace.”

We all feel that this terms topic on WW2 has truly inspired the pupils to produce some amazing work, well done year 6.

Declaration of war: PM Neville Chamberlain announces Britain is at war
Transcript of announcement
I am speaking to you from the Cabinet Room of 10 Downing Street. This morning the British Ambassador in Berlin handed the German government a final note, stating that unless we heard from them – by 11 o’clock – that they were prepared at once to withdraw their troops from Poland, a state of war would exist between us.  I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received and that, consequently, this country is at war with Germany.
