Remembrance Week

This week in school we have learnt all about Remembrance and what it means to wear a poppy.

We learnt that Remembrance Day is a special day that we remember all the soldiers who fought at war and died for us. We wear a poppy at this time of year, as a symbol to remember all of the people who sadly lost their lives during the war. We listened to ‘The Last Post’ quietly and learnt that we hold a 2 minute silence each year to remember the fallen.

We made poppies in playdoh and used materials to create our own poppies too.

We made our own soldier to stand in soil around the United Kingdom flag in the school grounds.

Towards the end of the week, we created poppy paintings. The red petals represent the blood of those who gave their lives and the black button represents the mourning of those who never welcomed their loved ones home.
