A wall of poppies made by Honiton pupils has been installed at Littletown Primary Academy.

The idea was thought up by the school’s ‘Little Troopers’ - children of active servicemen and women.

The wall is sited close to the school’s reception.

Littletown’s principal, David Perkins, said: “Our teacher Liane Childs, who organises for activities and workshops for the Little Troopers, worked with the children on this project.

“Remembrance is important to these children so they came up with the idea of wanting to create something that everybody can contribute to.”

Every pupil at Littletown made their own poppy at home to put on the remembrance wall, which was completed in a week.

The school will keep the commemorative wall up for the rest of the year.

Mr Perkins added: “The children put a lot of effort into it, and have spoken about it in assemblies.”
