With Remembrance Day just around the corner, we spent some time in Year 5 discussing why we have a day dedicated to remembering. The children all had some fantastic ideas and showed a good understanding of what Remembrance Day is, as well as the reasons that it exists. We also had a look at the reasons why the poppy was selected as the flower of remembrance and tied it into the famous poem ‘In Flanders Fields’.
The children then had a go at creating a piece of artwork in honour of remembrance. We used simple colours and silhouettes and the children each chose their favourite part of the poem to include. I think you will all agree that the end products looking amazing!
