Armistice Day is on 11th November and is also known as Remembrance Day. It marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. A two-minute silence is held at 11am to remember the people who have died in wars. Remembrance Sunday is also marked each year, this falls on the second Sunday in November.
This year, like most things because of coronavirus, Armistice day is a little different. England will be in lockdown during this time and there are different restrictions across Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Downing Street has confirmed however that remembrance day services and events can be held, as long as there are strict social distancing measures.
At Leighton, we had discussions around the significance of Remembrance Day. We wrote messages of remembrance together as a class and then displayed these on our giant poppies around school for all to see.
