Remembrance Day was first observed in 1919 throughout the British Commonwealth. It was originally called “Armistice Day” to commemorate armistice agreement that ended the First World War on Monday, November 11, 1918, at 11 a.m.—on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
Commemorating Remembrance Day, is a great opportunity to teach and celebrate our British Values. We held a special assembly to learn; discuss the importance of the day; why we wear poppies; the histories related to the memorial and the role of the Royal British Legion. We all held a two minute silence, to honour the sacrifices and lives lost “LEST WE FORGET”.
