Poppy Day is a nickname for Remembrance Day since poppies are used to represent the soldiers dead in the war. The moat in the Tower of London becomes a beautiful and powerful display of poppies: each one echoes a soldier lost and the scale is scary.
This year marks the centenary of the beginning of World War 1 and hundreds of events are being held around UK and overseas. In the 4th ESO English class earlier today we also did a special activity. First the students made their own lovely craft poppies; then they put the poppies on the wall of the corridor; finally, we remembered the fallen with a 2 minute silence.
