Hundreds at Thomas Eaton Primary Academy made poppies of different fabrics and designs to create a display in their school entrance to commemorate the centenary of WW1.

Some of the children’s poppies will be displayed in the Parish Hall in Wimblington from Friday 2 to Sunday 4 November.

The children will be taking an active role in the Remembrance service at St Peter’s Church in Wimblington on Sunday November 11.

In October pupils and staff buried a stainless steel time capsule containing school memorabilia to celebrate the school’s 200-year anniversary.

The children were joined by a group of engineering students from Stainless Metalcraft Ltd in Chatteris who produced the capsule.

It is hoped that in years to come when the capsule is unearthed the contents will reveal evidence of school life in 2018.
