Students Learn The Meaning Behind the Armistice Day Poppies

Year 7 students, together with their teacher, Miss Taylor, decided to merge an Art lesson with a History lesson and concentrate on The Poppy Appeal and Remembrance Sunday.

Year 7 students, together with their teacher, Miss Taylor, decided to merge an Art lesson with a History lesson and concentrate on The Poppy Appeal and Remembrance Sunday. The small group walked around the school site and picked leaves that they felt would best suit their design ideas. Returning to the classroom the leaves were used to print paint onto paper after which they were cut out and glued onto a structure made from lolly sticks to create a beautiful poppy. Chloe Glover, 11, said “I loved the activity because I love what the Poppy stands for!”. The students learnt all about the meaning behind the poppies and Armistice Day and respected, along with the rest of the school, the two minute silence at 11.00am on the 11th hour of the 11th month.
