Remembrance Day

Today we have been talking about Remembrance Day. We talked about how we need to take time to remember all those who sadly lost their lives in war. 


Armistice Day is on 11 November. It's also known as Remembrance Day.

A two minute silence is observed at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month because this is when World War I, or the Great War, ended in 1918.

But now, this anniversary is used to remember all the people who've died in wars since World War I.


We will be having a 2 minute silence tomorrow at 11am. 


Tomorrow afternoon we will be watching our Year 5 children perform a special assembly for Remembrance. We have all made a poppy today, which we will wear tomorrow.
