The children in Key Stage 2 at our High Peak School in Cheshire East marked this important occasion by creating a thoughtful Remembrance display and spent time learning all about the history and significance of Remembrance Day. The students worked hard to understand why we observe Remembrance Day each year on November 11th, the anniversary of the end of World War I in 1918.
They learned about the red poppy as a symbol of remembrance and sacrificed their lunch times to assemble a moving display featuring handmade poppies, poems, and facts about World War I and II.
Their display served as a reminder to the whole school community of the sacrifices made by British and Commonwealth soldiers in the two World Wars and subsequent conflicts.
The children treated the occasion with maturity and respect, recognising that remembering those who have served helps keep their spirit of service alive even today.
