Today the children learnt all about remembrance day. They learnt about why we have remembrance day and why we wear poppies. They reflected on how they could learn from the soldiers who fought for our country and how they can also help others too at home, school and our local community. The children wrote their ideas on poppies and then coloured them in.

The children had art today. We looked at how we can use different colours when creating portraits to show the emotions the person is feeling. We looked at Picasso's blue period and some other artists too. The children chose a person they wanted to draw and then used the appropriate colours to show their emotions.
