Different year groups made poppies in different ways, and came together on Monday mark the important day by sharing their work with one another
Millie, 10, said: "I really enjoyed making the poppies because it was a way of showing respect to soldiers.
"I think it is important that we remember them in different ways."
Organiser and Year 6 teacher Adam Kent added: "It was fantastic to see the school pull together to mark such an important date.
