Understanding of the world: People and Communities.
Remembers and talks about significant events in their own experience.
This week the children have all made a poppy. We talked about Remembrance Sunday, and how lots of people worked and fought so that we today are safe and able to play and enjoy where we live.
Teaching our children about the significance of Remembrance Day and why people wear a poppy is not always an easy thing to do. Watching the BBC children’s remembrance film ‘Poppies’ helped convey the notion of Remembrance in a way that would resonate with a young audience. This is a beautiful and evocative animation that sees war as experienced by animals in a war battlefield.
