Our Poppies

As part of 'Commemorative Week' we learnt all about Remembrance Day and why we commemorate and remember those who fought and lived during the war. We created our own poppies for a school display. We used plastic bottles to form the flower. We cut the tops off the plastic bottles and cut flaps which we bent back to make the petals of the flower. We then cut the flaps into petal shapes and painted the flowers using red and blackĀ  acrylic paint. We really enjoyed creating our own poppies as a way of showing our respect! We think they look really effective and will make a great display for our school!
