Poppies at Maidenhead

“In our recent mixed media lessons we have come together as two units and made a group art piece about the British legion poppy campaign. The art piece we have made is to remember those who have lost their lives and those who are still fighting for our country. To remember them we each created our own version of a poppy. They were ranging from crocheted poppies to painted and drawn. It was lovely because each individual got to input their own creativity. We first wrote the poem ‘in Flanders field’ as a background and then arranged our poppies surrounding the poem. “ Young Person, Maidenhead
