Visit to Jubilee Wood

We went to Jubilee Wood in September with Stars class, to plant poppy seeds as part of the WW1 Centenary Celebrations. The poppies will flower next summer and will remain as a permanent reminder to all who visit the woodland of the sacrifice made during World War One. David Cameron has commented, The First World War centenary programme is about recognition and Remembrance, focusing particularly on young people and helping them make a connection with the events that changed the world a century ago. This poppy initiative is a great idea that will help the next generation understand the significance of what happened during the First World War and commemorate the sacrifice of those who died. The children had a fabulous time in the woodland, acknowledging their responsibility for their own local environment.

Whilst we were there, we sketched some of the trees and bushes to help us with our poetry writing for Harvest Festival. We also re-filled the Bug Hotel, that Saturn built two years ago.
