Remembrance Day at the school

The 11th of November is a very important date across United Kingdom; it is a day to remember and honour all the soldiers who died in World War 1. Ceremonies and silences at 11am are held everywhere: people are asked to stop what they are doing to remember. The day is called Remembrance Day.

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.

The pictures above and below show the lovely displays on the corridor. Browse our Flickr page for more photos on the activity.
