Primary school pupils from three London Colney schools’ have planted poppy seeds to mark 100 years since the beginning of World War One.

Organised by the village parish council, London Colney School, Bowmansgreen School and St Bernadette School planted seeds so that they flower in time for the anniversary on August 4.

Tom Bagge, community manager and Malcolm Macmillan, chairman of the parish council joined the children during the plantings to commemorate the period from 1910-1914, on Thursday, May 1.

Mr Bagge said: "It was really nice and a really enjoyable day.

"The children were very inquisitive and asked great questions. They were very interested in what it was like in the First World War."

This coincides with ongoing school projects, where the children are currently learning about the First World War and what it was like to live in that period.
