Year 4

Meeting Lt. Fred

November 13th, 2017 · 2 Comments · General News, Learning Habits, Year 4

Lieutenant Fred Ide of the Grenadier Guards’ 1st Battalion, based in Aldershot, was our guest of honour at our annual Remembrance Service.

He spoke to the school community about the significance of remembering those soldiers who have died in battle and how we should, as British citizens, aspire to the values of the British soldier: Loyalty, Integrity and Courage.

Just before leaving the school, Lt. Fred popped into 4E to say hello and with much enthusiastic delight, the children peppered him with questions about his life and various aspects of the army. It was wonderful to share in their excitement and interest. Certainly through many of the children’s computer games, they were fairly knowledgeable about the ‘art’ of warfare and were quite surprising with questions about weaponry, tactics and skills.

We are very grateful to Lt. Fred for spending some time with us and we wish him well in his manoeuvres in chilly Wales this week.

    He was amazing really nice too. My grandad was in the RAF and when I told him I had forgotten the name of the regiment and he knew it because I said about the grenade on his hat.
