This week we have talked about what remembrance is, and why we think it is important to remember. We learnt that the poppy is a symbol of remembrance following the First World War (1914-1918) and has continued to be used as a mark of respect to all soldiers who have lost their lives fighting for their countries since.
We found out about Mr Eccles' family who served during WW1. His Great Great Uncle Percy was killed in action, in France. We were able to see photographs of his grave, read his death record and see some other interesting artifacts from the war.
We also spoke about what we will be remembering during the 2 minute silence, that we will observe as a class, at 11am on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month (Armistice Day).
