Today was the anniversary of the end of the First World War. To remember the soliders who died in that war, we held 1 minute of silence at 11 o clock. We have also been wearing red poppies this week to help us remember too. We wear red poppies because those are the flowers that grew in the fields where the fighting took place in the war. In class, we learned a little bit about the history of Remembrance day and watched this interesting video about where the poppy badges are made.
