This year, we have been asked to be part of a project run by Bishop’s Stortford’s town council to mark the centenary of the end of World War I. The Year 2 children have been involved in creating a poppy installation that will be positioned in the town centre.
We began this project by looking at the famous poppy installation that was installed at the Tower of London during the centenary of the start of World War 1 and we discussed its significance. Then we thought about other symbols of remembrance, and decided to make our poppies into a cross and a wreath. We used plastic bottles to create our poppies and all the children had the opportunity to paint their own poppy.
Please keep an eye out for our installations if you go into the town during half term and the week leading up to Remembrance Sunday.
