Primary school children have been busy decorating 300 poppies that will adorn their school gates for a Remembrance Service.

Every child across both key stages at Lover's Lane Primary School, Newark, has decorated a poppy and added one of three messages approved by the school council on a tag that thanks those that went off to war for their service.

School teaching assistants were innovative in creating the poppy bases, using the ends of plastic bottles that would otherwise have been discarded as part of a process to make an eco-greenhouse that is currently being constructed at the school, which uses plastic bottles for its walls.

The children also paid £1 each to come to school in black and white, with the money raised going to the Royal British Legion.

The poppies will adorn the school gates on November 9 to coincide with a remembrance assembly commemorating the 100th anniversary of the first world war armistice being signed.
