Clevedon primary school pupils have been planting poppies to mark the end of World War One.

Children at Yeo Moor Primary School, in Kennaway Road, were joined by Clevedon town councillor Linda Little to plant the seeds.

Cllr Little also gave the pupils an impromptu history lesson about the war.

Headteacher Roland Lovatt said: “It was an excellent learning opportunity for our pupils to meet the local councillor and to remember the end of World War One with the planting of poppy seeds.”

The school is also celebrating receiving Achievement For All lead status.

The school achieved the award thanks to the support it gives to children of all backgrounds and abilities.

Yeo Moor Primary School is part of the Clevedon Learning Trust alongside Clevedon School, Tickenham Primary School and Mary Elton Primary School.
