Staff and learners respectfully created lots of reflective artwork in honour of Remembrance Day, to remember those who have died in wars around the world.

Tutor, Vicky Lane, was proud of the various artwork produced at R.E.A.L’s Nanpantan site. She said: “There’s been lots of hard work at Nanpantan over the last few weeks, a fantastic poem by Learner J, 3D poppies completed by a very talented Learner A, and hands to acknowledge the past and present of those serving.”

Learner Zac from R.E.A.L’s Ilkeston site created this poignant acrostic poem:

Remember the people died

Everyone risked their life

Medals were given out to soldiers

Everyone wears poppies/pins

Marching over the hill

Blasting guns stop

Enemies retreating

Returning from the battlefield
