Remembrance Day 2020
Remembrance Day Wednesday 11th November 2020
In form time on Monday 8AP created a wreathe of poppies. Each of the students coloured and cut out at least 3 poppies, which were then attached onto a piece of cardboard in the shape of a wreath.
The red poppy represents the remembrance of the soldiers who fought in WW1, the purple poppy represents the animals that died in WW1 (horses, dogs and pigeons), the black poppy represents the African and Caribbean and Asian communities that fought as part of the British Empire, and the white poppy represents the conscientious objectors and pacifists who want to remember those who died but do not agree with war as a way to solve conflicts.
