Youngsters at an infant school in Norwich commemorated Remembrance Day in a special school display.
Children from nursery up to year two at Mousehold Infant and Nursery School each painted their own poppy on a rock earlier this week.
With some classes have tackled the petals and others looking at the stem, the rocks were then brought together to create one large poppy.
While creating the artwork, the youngsters had a moment’s silence to reflect on the occasion.
Headteacher Rebecca Westall said: “It was really powerful and a moment children will always remember.”
It came as part of the Norfolk Rocks movement, a group which sees people leave decorated rocks around the county for others to discover.
Mum Penny Killian Anderson, from Diss, posted on the Norfolk Rocks Facebook page last month suggesting that parents and schools use the idea as a way of teaching children about Remembrance Day.
