St Peter's Catholic Primary School has revealed its pride after creating its own poppy field to commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day. 

All the children took part in creating the display situated at the front of the school where it is most visible.

The children learnt about Flanders Field where poppy flowers began to grow after the burial of the fallen soldiers, which was the inspiration for the school's creation.
