In Literacy this week we explored the book Where The Poppies Now Grow by Hilary Robinson and Martin Impey. Thinking about Remembrance day and the meaning of Peace. Reception were able to explain the story in their own ways, referring to before and after the war as 'light' and the war as 'dark'. With peace our value this month, Reception were asked to think about what makes them feel peaceful. Every child explained what they feel peaceful doing, explanations varied from cuddling our mummies and daddies, coming to school and watching TV! Having printed poppies; we practised our mark making and writing skills on our peaceful poppy photos. We have been very busy this week reflecting on Remembrance day, peace and using our phonics to write!
