Redriff Primary School pupils commemorated Southwark’s fallen men and women on Remembrance Day by forming a human poppy.

The creative students made the most of their red uniforms to create the remembrance symbol on their astro-turf sports pitch.

They used a mini drone to capture high-quality images of the stunning display.

Headteacher Michael Kelly said: “Lots of people from all over the country have been thinking of different ways to mark this day. We had a formal assembly explaining the meaning of Remembrance Day.

“But this was an opportunity to make an image in which the children could participate. In a real sense, all of the children made the image on their own.”
