Bright Horizons took part in honouring those in the armed forces since the first world war, originally called “Armistice Day”.
Children at Bright Horizons Toyota Bumpers Day Nursery and Preschool in Burnaston, Derbyshire made their own poppies ahead of Remembrance Day last week.
The children have been exploring different shapes and used their knowledge of shapes like squares, circles, triangles and rectangles to create the poppies.
“The children were really focused and concentrated to complete their poppies, using lots of different techniques and small hand and finger movements,” said Nursery Manager Lisa Snell. “It prompted lots of questions and conversations.”
Children at Bright Horizons Didcot Day Nursery and Preschool created poppies ahead of Remembrance Day last week.
The children also took part in a two-minute silence on the day to as the Last Post was played at the nursery.
“We have been teaching the children about our Armed Forces, the importance of Armistice Day and why we remember,” said Nursery Manager Mollie Edmunds.
