Remembrance Day is an important date in the calendar, and it is very important for children to learn a little about its meaning, even at an early age.


On Remembrance Day weekend, special ceremonies are held at war memorials and poppy wreaths are laid to pay respect to those who fought for their country.

In London, the royal family attend a commemorative ceremony at The Cenotaph in Whitehall (near the Houses of Parliament).

The Queen, members of the Government, politicians and soldiers lay wreaths at the foot of this famous war memorial, followed by a service of remembrance conducted by the Bishop of London.

Throughout the UK, a two-minute silence is traditionally observed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. This represents the guns falling silent on this day in 1918.


The Nursery children have been learning all about Remembrance Day.

 We have been creating our poppy’s and we delighted to play our small part in Remembrance Day.
