To commemorate Remembrance Day 2018, every year group across the school has produced beautiful artwork inspired by the poppy appeal. Each year group has been working with different mediums and techniques to show off the stunning poppy.
EYFS were using finger painting to create their poppy flowers. Year 1 created a beautiful wreath made from their hands and adorned with the poppy flower. Year 2 used tissue paper and green card. Year 3 created lifelike poppies made from paper and pipe cleaners. Year 4 used their pottery skills to create poppies. Year 5 put their sewing skills to the test by making handmade sewn poppies from felt. Finally, Year 6 used collage techniques to create stunning big poppies.
The art work looks beautiful and complemented a beautiful assembly. The children heard about the importance of the First World War as well as the fact this year is a special commemoration of the end of the war because it has been 100 years. Some children read out letters written by soldiers from the trenches describing the conditions and Year 6 children performed poetry they had written reflecting on the importance of remembrance.
