Remembrance Day in Whales Class

For Remembrance Day we discussed the significance of the poppy and learnt about life in the trenches for the soldiers. We shared a poem called ‘Think of Me’. We discussed how the poem made us feel and how to write for a purpose, to help our reader feel the same emotions we felt when we first read the poem. Then the children wrote their own amazing versions. We held our two-minute silence and reflected on our morning. We continued our learning by creating beautiful poppy art work using guided painting and incorporating silhouettes of soldiers.
