Remembrance Day

Armistice Day is on the 11th November and is also known as Remembrance Day. It marks the day World War One ended, at 11 am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. Every Remembrance Day at 11 am, people all over the world come together for 2 minutes of silence. We have a moment of silence for the same reason we have parades, flags at half-mast, and wear poppies; as a gesture of respect. The moment of silence is meant for everyone to reflect, contemplate, meditate, or even pray. It is an important tribute towards the brave people who have served and fallen in service to our country. This week, we have coloured and painted poppies to be taken to a special ceremony at the Aberford cenotaph with Reverend Martin, as well as writing poems and sharing thoughtful ideas.
