Using art to learn about Remembrance Day

Using art to learn about Remembrance Day

Posted: 17th November 2020

Young people learnt about the meaning behind the poppy as they used art to mark Remembrance Day.

Year 7 students at Sir Frederick Gibberd College completed an art project to mark the occasion.

Students learnt the significance of different coloured poppies – red, purple, white and black to symbolise those who lost their lives.

They created inclusive poppy wreaths to go on display on their classroom doors to share the knowledge with their peers.

Donna Walsh, ADT teacher, said: “This art project enabled students to educate their classmates about the meaning behind Remembrance Day and what each coloured poppy stands for.

“The poppy wreaths, made from paper, carry labels explaining the various colours used.”

Headteacher Dee Conlon said: “At Sir Frederick Gibberd College, we always explain to our students why we do what we do, so they understand and appreciate the world around them.

“For Remembrance Day, we did this through our art lessons, a whole school assembly and a two-minute silence.

“We will also be linking poppies to studying wars in history, war poetry in English, conflict and conflict resolution in SMSC, impact of war on economy and environment in geography and to our careers education programme. This means our students have a broader and deeper understanding of what they are learning, but also understand more about our society and the global world. Making links to careers at every opportunity also will enable our students to make informed choices when it comes to choosing post-16 and post-18 options.

“Our curriculum is designed so all our students, from Year 7 to Year 13, benefit from such cross-curricular links, so they can leave us having grown into educated, responsible and thoughtful young adults who have the skills and the knowledge to be successful in their professional and private lives.”
