Remembrance Day 1918-2018

 

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is held on the 11th of November - the 11th day of the 11th month of the year.  2018 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War.

On Remembrance Day, people will lay wreaths of poppies on statues and monuments to remember all the soldiers who died for us.

A two minute silence is always held at 11am to remember the millions who died at war.  

From Flanders to villages across the UK and Germany, bells will ring out.

I’ll wear a little poppy,
As red as red can be,
To show that I remember
Those who fought for me.

 

The poem In Flanders Fields by Canadian John McCrae is a strong symbol of World War I.

It’s wonderful to see the children in school be involved in activities to commemorate this day. Each class has created their own poppy in their own style.  These have been brought together in the entrance of school to make a fabulous display.  There are also some very poignant silhouettes placed around school. 

We wear a poppy
On Remembrance Day,
And at eleven
We stand and pray.
Wreaths are put
Upon a grave.
As we remember
Our soldiers brave.
