Poppies

Thursday 07 November 2019
Yesterday, in Mrs Bharath’s lesson, the children discussed why people wear poppies. As Remembrance day approaches, it is important that children understand (in brief) the reason poppies are used to remember those who have given their lives in battle.  Poppies are significant because they are the flowers which grew on the battlefields after World War One ended.

Ever since then, poppies have become a symbol of remembering not just those who gave their lives in World War One, but all those who have died on behalf of their country.Image result for poppy fields

Today, we took the opportunity to have a go at sketching poppies. I’m sure you will agree, these drawings are simply stunning.
