Alnwick Class learn about Poppies

11th November 2016

This week Alnwick Castle Class have been finding out about why everyone is wearing poppies.  To help us we were so lucky to have a special visitor - Mrs Waugh - who brought lots of fascinating things to show us and let us explore about life in the past for children in the war.  She taught us about many amazing historic things including artifacts from a soldiers pack and an evacuee's suitcase.  Finally we talked about why people wear poppies and why it is important that we remember and how we can live a a peaceful world today.
