Somerset Pupils Make Giant Poppy - VIDEO

Children from a primary school near Wells have laid down 11,281 petals to form a giant poppy.

Pupils at Coxley School used this exact amount to represent each soldier from Somerset or serving in Somerset Regiments who died in the WW1.

40 boys and girls spent over an hour carefully placing leaves and poppy petals in the school field to form the huge poppy.

The children were inspired by the many remembrance projects especially The Tower of London display.

The poppy formed part of their study on The Great War.



This Saturday (8th November) some of the children will be at Wells Market selling their handmade felt poppies for £2 each to raise money for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
