Rush Green Primary School in Dagenham has been covered in striking handmade poppies as staff and pupils commemorate those who lost their lives during the wars. 

The school corridors showcase beautiful displays of children’s work, featuring poems, drawings and creative writing to honour the fallen. And poppies feature all over the school grounds, popping up in planters, appearing on windows and adorning the school gates in stunning wreaths.

“The remembrance displays around Rush Green Primary School look fantastic and are a poignant way to honour those who gave their lives."

Pupils took part in class assemblies on Remembrance Day and observed a two-minute silence at 11am to remember those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

Headteacher, Simon Abeledo, said: “We are grateful to those who fought and gave their lives to preserve our way of life.

“The children and staff wanted to honour the fallen by carrying out the two-minute silence and by making our own poppies to show our respects and remind others to do the same.”

Councillor Evelyn Carpenter, Cabinet Member for Educational Attainment and School Improvement, said: “The remembrance displays around Rush Green Primary School look fantastic and are a poignant way to honour those who gave their lives.

“Well done to everybody involved.”
