Primary school marks Armistice Day by creating peace garden and poppy display

ITV News Central Reporter Dani Crawshaw reports on the tributes from children for Armistice Day

A primary school in Coventry has marked Armistice Day by creating a peace garden and poppy display.

Schoolchildren at Earlsdon Primary made the wall of poppies to honour those who fought and lost their lives in conflicts.

Members of the public are now being invited to lay poppy seeds at the site of the display.

Speaking about their memorial, pupils said: "It's really kind of bright and cheerful."

"We just want to make people remember by putting up lots of poppies," another added.

A third said: "They fought so we could have peace further on."

Last year, the school's poppy display was tweeted and eventually liked by Hollywood legend Morgan Freeman.

This year, when asked by ITV Central reporter Dani Crawshaw about who they think might like their display...students said Ryan Reynolds.

The children at Earlsdon have also written peace poems.

One read: Peace is a place where, everyone is in harmony, all wars have ended, countries and continents collaborate together and everywhere there is justice."

The pupils said they are determined to honour those who so bravely fought and died in military conflicts.
