Remembrance Day Displays Poppies



.

I love this display for Remembrance Day. The colours work so well together. The black backing paper provides a perfect neutral background for the red of the children’s work and the lettering. The use of a bright green accent as thin border on the board is then repeated as a mount for the work.
Usually I don’t like ‘fussy cutting’ children’s drawings but on this occasion it has worked well. I know I always tell people to position work using guidelines but on this occasion the angles have been carefully balanced. It’s a great visual skill if you can do this but it is hard to get it right. This does.

You can find some really good Remembrance resources including editable poppies, crosses and writing frames at Teachers Pet
