Remembrance Day!


The children have very much enjoyed participating in an activity to remember the sacrifice made by so many soldiers to give us the life and freedom we are fortunate to have today. They demonstrated excellent fine motor skills through independently making the play dough into the shape they wanted.

The children then placed the play dough pieces onto the spots on their poppies. We discussed the varying sizes of the play dough balls as the children practised the concept of biggest/smallest and bigger/smaller. The children also practised their counting in telling their grown up the number of play dough balls on their poppies.

Today’s activity has really helped the children learn the importance of democracy and free will and how we need to celebrate and thank those who gave their lives for us. Discussing this with the children from a young age helps educate them on important historical events that shaped the world we live in now.

Lots of love as always,

Leigh and the team xxx
