Lest We Forget
Spindle Point Primary School spent the day learning about World War 1 and how it affected their local area of Kearsley, to mark the 100 year anniversary of the armistice of the Great War. Children and staff across the whole school created an individual poppy to add to their own version of ‘The Poppy Wave’ currently on display at The Imperial War museum. Around 250 handcrafted poppies, made from recycled plastic bottles, were made and added by the children in honour of those lost to or affected by war including men, women and children in Kearsley. The display symbolises lives lost in large areas, as well as those in smaller areas of land. Pictured are Kay Trow, who designed the memorial and children, Rosa and Che who are seen adding the final poppies.
