Every year the country comes together for Remembrance Sunday. A period of silence is held at 11am to remember the people who have died in wars around the world. Remembrance Day - which was on Friday - marks the actual day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. Remembrance Sunday is also marked each year, and usually falls on the second Sunday in November. The royal family will lay wreaths at the Cenotaph and the UK will have a moment of silence at 11 o'clock this morning as part of the commemorations.
On Friday, the whole school took part in a two minute silence and talked about why we wear poppies. Year groups did a range of activities including making their own poppy inspired artwork for the classroom.
BBC Children’s remembrance film. A beautiful and evocative animation that sees war as experienced by animals in a WWI battlefield.
