Royal British Legion Assembly

We were very lucky today to be able to welcome members of the Royal British Legion into school, Mr Howard Moorby and Mr Bill Storey.

Howard and Bill gave us a really fascinating talk about how, and more importantly why, the poppy appeal was formed in the first place.  Did you know that the first poppies that were made were made of silk?  We learnt about how their shape has evolved over time and how they have ended up the shape they are today.

Howard and Bill then went on to tell us about the role of the Royal British Legion, what they do today and where the money that is raised goes.

Thank you so much for visiting us today, we learnt an amazing amount and really appreciate what you continue to do every year.
