Kidderminster Nursery Remembers with Poppies and Cake

Large and small brightly coloured pictures of poppies and cakes have been created by the children at Little Trinity Nursery in Kidderminster to mark this year’s Remembrance Day.

Every child attending Little Trinity took part and created their very own paper windmills, poppy pictures and drawings, and even made special Remembrance Day cakes.

Nursery manager Gaynor Carter explained: “We believe it’s important that all children learn about a wide range of topics and subjects during their time at Little Trinity, and age was irrelevant as every child was able to demonstrate and use their individual creative skills to make their poppies and talk about the colours and materials as they painted. They also discussed how lives and families can very often be different, which created many opportunities to question and discuss communities and the world.”

The nursery children also talked about Remembrance Day, or Armistice Day as it’s also known, and what it is all about and the fact that the 11th of November commemorates the day World War One ended in 1918 with the signing between the Allies and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front, which took effect at 11:00 am, on the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month.
