‘Full Force’ Planting Poppy Seeds

Our lunchtime club for service children, ‘Full Force’ met up on Friday to welcome a special visitor.
Ruth Wilson from Gosport Discovery Centre came into school to talk to the children about the origin of poppies and how we wear poppies to commemorate service men and women that have been killed in all conflicts to date.

Ruth brought with her some poppy seeds of the ‘Papaver rhoeas’ variety and the children were able to plant these seeds in the pond area where we hope to create our own memorial garden. We look forward to seeing them successfully grow next spring.
We will keep you updated on our rememberance garden as it develops.
