Children’s Remembrance lessons

YOUNGSTERS in Purbeck got creative while learning about Remembrance Sunday and the significance of the poppy.

Tops Day Nurseries across the county took part in a variety of activities for Remembrance Day.
Pre-school children at Tops Christchurch, at Priory Hall, had a go at creating their own poppies using different materials like red and green playdough as they learned about why it is worn.
And at Tops Day Nurseries Corfe Mullen, in Blandford Road, youngsters created seed paper poppies to plant next spring. The seed mix contained a variety of wildflowers, including poppies.
Shaye Jaques, nursery manager at Tops Corfe Mullen, said: “The children really enjoyed making their own poppies and were very interested to find out why we wear them.
“It is so important to teach the children about Remembrance Day because it is one of the most important days in our history and it helps them to understand the world around them.”
