Listening and thinking.
Talking and discussing.
Black poppies and red poppies.
Black for the centre and red for the petals,
What a surprise! A huge poppy.
It is 100 years since the First World War.
More poppies we saw on our way outside the Youth Line building.
Ready to go!
Rooms 2 and 2a walked to Burnside park to see the poppy display.
Today, Thursday 23rd April Room 2 and Room 2a went for a walk to visit Burnside Park.
Artist Cristina Beth sent out kitsets of the poppies which have been made by groups of volunteers. It takes about 7 minutes to make each poppy. She says the hardest part is sewing on the button for the centre of the flower.
The idea is to meet in groups to do the work and talk about their history – did they have a family member serving in the war? Maybe a grandfather or uncle?
Men went to World War 1 to fight for peace and Cristina thinks people need to be reminded of this.
Local Returned and Services Associations are also making crosses to go alongside them.

It is the centenary of World War 1.
We enjoyed our trip.
We learned a lot.
‘Lest we forget’ – it is important to remember the brave soldiers who fought for our country.
We stayed at the park for a while and then walked back to school.
