For Remembrance Day, the children in Nursery watched a video on CBeebies about a bunny in the war. They talked about the things they noticed in the video and we talked about the soldiers fighting the bad people and that we wear poppies to remember them.
In Reception, the children learnt about the soldiers during the war. They looked at the clothes they were wearing and discussed what they saw. They then made their own soldiers and labelled their clothes.
Year 1 learnt about Remembrance Day and why we wear a poppy. They wrote an acrostic poem that spelt the word Poppy. They also practised their fine motor skills by threading a shoelace through a cut out of a Poppy.
The children in Year 2 had two fun poppy activities to do, the first was creating their own poppy to wear out of tissue paper. The scrunched the red tissue paper and stuck on green and black. The second was creating a poppy out of different materials in frames, they used Pom poms, pipe cleaners, buttons and feathers and all created wonderful poppies.
On Remembrance day, the Year 3 pupils watched a video about what we remember on this day. They wrote a few facts on a sheet and rhyming poems.
The Year 4 children were lucky enough to present an assembly to the whole school about Remembrance Day. They explained about the sacrifices the soldiers made and why people wear poppies. They also learnt about the different coloured poppies that could be worn and what they represented.
During Remembrance week in Year 5, the children watched some videos and read some poems about WW1 and Remembrance Sunday. The children created collage poppies for Poppy Day in our class art session. They choose materials, colours and textures to bring to life what had been discussed in class about Remembrance day in class.
Year 6 watched some different videos and reflected on the themes and ideas about remembrance. Then they created Remembrance day art work based on their thoughts and feelings and wrote narrative poems about poppy day, thinking about the reason we use poppies to remember those who fought for our country.
