Nursery children mark Armistice Day with poppy paintings

Bookmark

The children at Alphabet House in Lowdham have been hard at work this week making handprint painted poppies to mark Armistice Day.

Staff at the nursery on Gunthorpe Road in the village worked closely with the children to raise awareness of this very special day in an uplifting and creative way.

Nursery manager Lisa Chipping said the nursery wanted to make the children aware of what the day was about in “carefully considered way”.

She said: “Painting is one of children’s favourite past-times, so they jumped at the chance to roll up their sleeves and create their own, personal ‘Poppy Day’ poppy. We then gave the poppies to the children’s parents as a reminder of what Armistice Day stands for.”
