The Big Poppy Make:

  • 520 pupils each made a paper poppy printed with the poems 'In Flanders Fields' by John McCrae (KS2) or 'The soldier' by Peter Brooke (KS3).
  • Poppy kits were sent home for parents to join in with the activity.
  • The poppies displayed at school, take inspiration from the poppy installation at The Tower of London in 2014.
  • Each poppy was made to remember a fallen soldier from WW1.
  • Pupils learned the meaning of the poppy and why we use it to remember our fallen soldiers.
  • The school held a special Remembrance Assembly.
