Feniton has dressed its outside area with a poignant display of poppies commemorating the fallen soldier of World War One.
The initiative was cooked up by mums Emma Mullenger and Charlotte Guyen, who approached the school to see if a tribute could be created.
From there, pupils were asked to collect plastic bottle bottoms, which were painted red to look like poppies and fastened to the gates outside the school.
Emma said: “Feniton Primary School was very keen to get involved.
“The schoolchildren will be singing old war songs and bringing in stories about their relatives who were in World War One in their Remembrance service being held next week.

It reminds our pupils and the wider community of the significance of Remembrance Day and is also a symbol for hope and peace for the future.
