Miss Gregory: November 2023
This week we have been exploring, why we wear a poppy? To support our learning we have learned a poppy song, 'Wear a Poppy Today' and the following poem;
I have a little poppy.
As red as can be.
To show that I remember
those who fought to keep me free.
Throughout the week, we have decorated a biscuit with red icing to make a poppy, created a poppy crown, used a needle and thread to thread a poppy, painted our own picture of a field of poppies and we also explored water colours then painted our own poppy picture.
We have shared the Cbeebies animation 'Poppies on the whiteboard. We discussed the rabbit and explored his feelings before, during and after the war. We enjoyed looking at the illustrations in the story, 'Where The Poppies Now Grow' and we were introduced to some new vocabulary, such as, trenches, veteran and injured. We also made some beautiful cards to say thank you to the soldiers.
Lest we forget!
