Poppies and Poems

On Monday and Tuesday we made poppies from plastic bottles. We cut the bottles into flower shapes. Then we painted them red and left them to dry. Next, we painted the middle black. The poppies will be displayed on the telephone box.

In English, we have been writing poems to go on the poppy displays. We thought about what it was like in the trenches by listening to an excerpt from Private Peaceful. Then we thought about what the soldiers might miss most about home. We tried to extend these ideas with adverbs and adjectives and put it together in a poem.

What a gorgeous and symbolic telephone box Woodborough now has. Please drop in to read KS 2 work on your way to and from School.
