Each year we mark Remembrance Day by doing an activity with the children, this gives us an important opportunity to open up a discussion with the children about the relevance of Poppy day and why we remember.
This year we decided to head to the beach with our rakes and rake some poppies into the sand.
It was a lovely day, the children did a fantastic job and we took time to reflect on history.
We rewarded ourselves with some seaside chips.
We left the beach as the sun went down and the tide raced in to wash away the poppies but we’ll always remember them.
