P1 did very well staying quiet during our 2 minute silence at 11am this morning to mark Remembrance Day. We watched a video yesterday about the importance of commemorating the soldiers that fought in WW1 and explaining the symbolism of the poppy. 

We practised our cutting skills this afternoon by creating our own poppies. P1 cut out 4 red love heart shapes for petals and a black circle for the middle and stuck them on to paper plates. We will continue to practise how to use scissors effectively and safely over the next coming weeks. Fantastic work P1!
