In Flanders fields...


Our Junior Remove girls have been planting Flanders poppy seeds in the 'wild area' at the edge of the Melrose garden as part of the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.

The girls used their History lessons to start thinking about this anniversary and the significance of poppies. They carried out some research on the internet to discover more about why they had been given poppy seeds.

During the rest of this week and the beginning of next week all of the girls in Melrose will be finding out a lot more about the war and will be given a packet of poppy seeds each to scatter either at home or at school.
