Remembrance - A life overshadowed by war - Script

Useful references: Poster or pictures of David Monksfi eld, his written case study and a poppy.
This week we are going to learn about this (hold up a poppy), what it stands for and why we wear it.
Who here has bought a poppy? Why do you wear it?
Some people think it is to remember war, and some people think it is about those who were killed in wars.
The poppy is actually to remember all those affected by wars and who risk their lives in the Armed Forces.
That includes the families of those who serve. What is important when you wear the poppy is that you are
remembering people.
So why is it associated with war? Well it has nothing to do with the colour. When we think about fl owers we
usually think about pretty things, and nearly a hundred years ago that was the same. At that time a war was
being fought that we now call World War One. It was a terrible war and many people were killed as battles
lasted for months.
From June through to August poppies grew across France and Belgium, even on the battlefi eld where the
ground had been churned up and devastated. The poppies growing proved that life could survive and gave
those fi ghting a sign of hope for the future.
