The Pre-Prep children were honoured that their clay poppies were used in the Remembrance Service

Inspired by the installation of poppies at the Tower of London  commemorating the centenary of the beginning of the First World War. The children in the Pre-Prep have been making clay poppies each year since 2014 to mark the duration of the Great War. Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed the experience of rolling and shaping the clay. The glazed poppies make a stunning display of Remembrance, and we are honoured that 28 of the Pre-Prep Poppies are now used in the Hazlegrove Remembrance Service each year, to commemorate former Plox and King’s Bruton pupils who lost their lives whilst in active service during and since the First World War.
