A school in Earlsfield has created a Remembrance Day art installation, which represents those that lost their lives in the First World War.

Students at Earlsfield Primary School spent the last few weeks crafting lanterns from willow and tissue paper for their collaborative project, that involves each year group from Early Years to Year 6.

The lanterns are decorated with tributes to the men, women and animals who fought in the war and poppies coloured red, purple, black and white.

Throughout Armistice Day (November 11), students will visit the school hall in COVID secure bubbles to view the installation.

They will all observe the two minute silence watching the installation via Zoom.

Art teacher, Charlotte Ockwell, said:

“We really wanted to share our Remembrance Memorial with the local community via an exhibition however due to lockdown restrictions this isn’t possible. So we would love to spread the message of Remembrance Day.”

One primary school student said: "I found it difficult not to cry when looking at our artwork during the two minute silence"

And another added: "It makes me feel upset to think there are still wars today and innocent people are losing their lives"
