The children drew pictures of poppies, coloured and cut them out, then attached them together to make a wreath. Wrapping up nice and warm, we headed to our local memorial garden to lay our wreath and walked around looking at all the names of the soldiers that are displayed on the wall. Lots of questions were asked by the children and the staff helped them to understand the meaning of the poppy and Remembrance Day by reading out some of the cards from other wreaths that had been left at the memorial.
