On Monday 23rd October I had the privilege of taking some Year 6s on our annual visit to the Repton British Legion to prepare for this year's poppy appeal. Our local branch is responsible for distributing tens of thousands of poppies and merchandise for a lot of South Derbyshire. The first job is to make the boxes for the poppies and then fill them with thousands of poppies for this year's campaign. Our Y6 house captains and school councillors then filled other boxes with poppies, wristbands and other merchandise for shops and schools in South Derbyshire. Their final job was to ensure all the 'tins' for donations were going to the correct places. This is always an enjoyable and worth while job that the children really enjoy. As always, they behaved perfectly throughout the session. Thank you to Zandra and her daughter Natalie for inviting us again this year.
