SCHOOLCHILDREN made their own poppy-themed tributes for remembrance after being inspired by the huge poppy display at the Tower of London.
Youngsters at Birdwell Primary School in Long Ashton planted poppies at the school entrance and on Remembrance Day were also taught about life in the military by parents who serve with the armed forces.
Year two teacher Emily Downing said: “We asked our children if they wanted to make a poppy to ‘plant’ in our entrance at school.
“It was amazing to see from when we came back to school after half term, each day our garden grow more and more poppies.
“We are so proud of the children and their families.

“They have been very creative too – we have poppies made of Lego, plastic, wood, sticks, fabric, Hama beads and more.”
