Remembrance Day Ceramic Poppies – Maths Problem Solving

This week saw us commemorating Remembrance Day.

Well done everyone for your hard work and for your thoughtful discussion

on Remembrance Day.

I thought I would add the following videos.

What do you think about the magnificent display of

ceramic poppies at the Tower of London?

The video should help you understand the amount of work

which went into making these poppies.

Did you realize that they were all hand made?

See if you can solve the mathematics problems on the next video.

Don’t scroll forward until you have worked out the answer!!

We acknowledge and thank  Theresa Young  for sharing this brilliant

‘Place Value’ presentation based on the First World War.

Please be patient since Prezi has to fully load before you can use it.

  1. It is very important to remember because they fought for our freedom and they died so today we remember all the people that fought.

  2. Dear Mrs Francis,
    Hello Mrs Francis! These videos were nice especially the video where the people are making the poppies out of clay! I like it how they make them because they are dedicated and want to contribute. It’s cool how 8000 people contributed to placing the flowers down!

  3. I think that Remembrance Day is important because many young men and women went to serve for our country and risked their lives for us.

  4. Dear Mrs Francis,
    To me, Remembrance Day is a day where we remember the people who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

    It is important because if we stop remembering and forget about them it would feel as if their efforts were put to waste. I wouldn’t want their souls to feel as if they wasted their life on us.


  5. Dear Mrs Francis,
    I really enjoyed watching the videos. Remembrance day to me is a day when we remember the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for us.

  6. Dear Mrs Francis,
    I enjoyed watching those videos but they were kind of short which was disappointing.. But other than that it was good! Hope your next year grade gets something as good as this.
    From Allan

  7. Dear Mrs Francis,
    I was so amazed that so many poppies were made just for remembrance day!I thought that the were bought and made by machines not made by hands.
