Every year throughout November, we remember those who sacrificed themselves for our country to protect our freedom. Each year, veterans and supporters sell poppies with proceeds going towards The Royal British Legion who help support the veterans post war.

Across the country, lots of our nurseries have been teaching our children about the sacrifices made by our veterans and have celebrated Remembrance Sunday in the week building up to 13th November. Here are just some of the lovely stories sent through by our nursery teams:

Our Horseshoe Nursery in Esher were asked by their children ‘why they had a flower on their jumper?’  Which began their conversations with the children about what the poppy represents.

Our Bumpers Nursery in Derby said ‘thank you’ to our soldiers by sitting quietly for 2 minutes and held poppies that they had made.

At our Englefield Green in Surrey, children made some poppy biscuits to commemorate Remembrance Day

Our Chiswick Park Nursery enjoyed drawing and decorating their own poppies using different materials like tissue paper, glitter and lolly sticks.
