Poppy Workshop!

For Remembrance Day this year, Oxford Grove took part in a Poppy Workshop. We discussed why we wear poppies – to remember the brave soldiers that fought in WW1 and WW2. We also found out that this year is really special as it marks 100 years since the end of WW1.

As part of the workshop, we listened to some poems which were written by soliders of the war, we performed these poems by using actions and a range of different voices. We also discovered some new terminology which links to History especially WW1.

I really enjoyed this workshop and I can tell 6J did too!

Can you remember any of the key words?

What did you most enjoy?

    I enjoyed the poppy workshop because it helped us all remember what it was like in war and all the poems make it real. I think this helped to remember all those people who were fighting (soldiers) against others!
