History

Autumn 2: Why do people wear poppies?

 

Week 1: Why are people wearing poppies this week?

We started our lesson this week talking about special events that happen throughout the year. We used this knowledge to create a timeline of events in our history books. 

This week we have been talking about Remembrance Day, we will be completing an activity to help us remember every day. 

We have really enjoyed finding out this week about the different coloured poppies that are used for remembrance. Ask us why people wear red, white, purple and black poppies. We created our own poppie using different materials and chose one of these colours when making it. We also made our own poppy from clay and will paint this in our chosen colour too. 

 

We also enjoyed finding out about the different ways people remember such as visiting the cenotaph, parades and laying wreaths.  Working in groups we made our own Poppy wreaths which are displayed in our classroom. 

Week 2

This week we started to learn about a significant person from history. 

We asked the questions: Who is Walter Tull and when did he live. 

We used pictures of Walter to make inferences about who we thought he was, where he lived, what job he did and why he was an important individual. 

 

We also enjoyed painting the poppies that we created last week.
