Children at the Giles Junior School in Stevenage have marked Remembrance Day by creating poppy artwork.
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.
