Remembrance Day

The children at Holly Bank have been learning about Remembrance Day and why we wear Poppies in November.

We talked about the war and all of the brave people that fought to keep us safe.

We looked at the meaning of different colours of poppies:

Red for remembrance and hope, purple for the animals that were lost, white for peace and black for the contribution black African and Caribbean communities.

The Daisies painted big poppies using different tools to create patterns.

The Poppies made pictures of poppies using handprints and paint.

The Bluebells chose which kind of poppy they would like to make and either drew around a template and cut it out or used potatoes to stamp the poppy shape and brushes to add the detail to their pictures.

Once the poppies were finished we ‘planted them’ in a remembrance garden outside.
