This week is road safety week. We went for a virtual visit of the fire station and discussed the ways we can stay safe. We discussed lollipop ladies and men, how to look twice, listen and walk across roads and how important it is to wear a helmet and protective clothing when we are cycling or on our scooters. Then we designed our own road safety posters to help promote what we have learned.

This week we have been looking at Remembrance Day and why we wear poppies. We have looked at when the first Remembrance day was and where the wars were fought. We learned that poppies grew over the battlefields in Flanders. Now the Royal British Legion sells poppies to help raise money for soldiers who have returned from war. We then listened to some stories from Mrs Kirkwood about her great-great grandfather who enlisted but was only 16 so he was not officially registered. He gave the ultimate sacrifice and because he lied about his age, he is not on any war memorials. The ‘There but Not There’, charity raises money for soldiers like this. Then we completed a 2 minutes silence at 11 o’clock and listened to The Last Post. After that, we looked at the medals from Miss O’Neil and designed our own medals similar to her great-great-great grandfather’s medals. Mr Appleby joined us to listen to Miss O’Neil’s grandma talk about her wartime experience. She was in put in front of a firing squad and buried alive in Dresden. We also made clay poppies, designed, and made a poppy mobile to hang in a window. After that, we made poems and did a potato print design of a poppy along with a soldier’s name.
