A Norfolk primary school have been working with a care scheme to make a centenary poppy display.
Pupils from Northgate Primary School, in Great Yarmouth, have been working on an intergenerational project with tenants living at The Lawns Housing with Care scheme.
Children have been visiting the scheme on Lawn Avenue and working with tenants to make hundreds of poppies to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.
Carole Nisbet, manager at the Lawns, where NorseCare provides care to tenants in 30 flats, said: “The tenants have really enjoyed working with the children on this lovely project.
“This year’s Armistice Day is a significant anniversary, we’re sure the final display will be striking and remind us all of this important date in the calendar.”

The idea came from two tenants from The Lawns who approached staff about making something creative for remembrance day.
Between them they came up with the idea of spray painting the bottom of bottles to make poppies.

A member of staff from Northgate Primary School, said: “We are proud to be educating our children about the centenary of the end of the First World War and plan an exhibition in school as well as a special service for all of our children.
“We will continue to work with The Lawns and have plans for involving them in our Christmas entertainment in December.”
The display can been seen in the garden outside the scheme on Lawn Avenue.
