NEIL FATKIN|AIWA! NO!|CHILDREN at St Jude’s Church of England Primary school have made more than 1,000 poppies to commemorate Armistice Day. All the poppies were then used to create a ‘poppy wave’ to commemorate all those who lost their lives in the First World War.

Acting Headteacher, Izzy Lewis, said: ‘We expected to get 420 poppies as this is how many children we have at the school. In the end we have a total of 1256 poppies which make up the wave.
