St Mary’s Catholic Primary School
Chloe Grace Olivia Paynton’s “My Poppy” – the original was handwritten, decorated by hand drawn poppies.
My mum gave me a poppy, which she pinned to my top
It was beautiful, and red, and I liked it a lot
“Mummy”, I said, “I love my poppy but what am I wearing it for?”
It’s special” she said, “to remember the people that fought in the war".
SO today I am wearing my poppy, with pride
As I remember all those who sadly died
St. Mary’s Reception Year (years 1 & 2) - Alex Bogdon’s “A Little Poppy” – handwritten.
I have seen people selling poppies
Selling poppies in shops today
The poppies are flowers of love
For the men who marched away
I will wear a little poppy, as red as red can be
To remember those who died for me
St. Mary’s Year 3 – Kiya Tustain’s “Remembrance” – handwritten, decorated by hand drawn poppies.
Bombing, exploding, invading armies, people shrieking
People protecting, saving, and dying
Everlasting love and peace
Fighting for their own right
Families perishing, hiding, fleeing, homes destroyed
