This week the children have learnt about two significant events in history and why it is important that they are remembered today, and continue to be remembered. The children learnt about World War I and World War II and how many, many people were killed or injured during these wars. They also learnt about the animals that also lost their lives due to wars and how they are honoured with a purple poppy. The children understood the importance of the poppy and why the poppy is used as a symbol of remembrance. We then made our own poppies in preparation for Remembrance Day.
