As Remembrance Day is on 11th November, Year 1 spent the afternoon thinking about how we could say thank you to those who gave so much to keep us safe and to give us our freedoms.
We talked about how poppies are used as a symbol of remembrance, not only to remember the soldiers but also the animals who were a part of war efforts all over the world. It was up to us to pick either a red poppy to say thank you to the soldiers, or a purple poppy to say thank you to the dogs, horses and pigeons who worked so hard to help the soldiers.
We sat and had 2 minutes of silence to think about what we had learnt and to think about what we were going to write on our poppy.
Amber and Marmalade Class are proud of our learning and how we were able to collaborate to complete a special task.
