Together with our senior school buddies we made these gorgeous red poppies. 

Click here and here if you would like instructions about how to make this poppy flower craft.

The red poppy has become a symbol of war remembrance the world over. People in many countries wear the poppy to remember those who died in war or who still serve. In many countries, the poppy is worn around Armistice Day (11 November), but in New Zealand it is most commonly seen around Anzac Day, 25 April.

The whole school made poppies and they were made into a wreath to lay at the base of our flagpole in a special ceremony.

We have 'Buddy Time' every Monday morning, normally we read and play literacy games together. It was fantastic to see my gorgeous class working so hard with their older buddy for this special occasion.
