PSHE 11.11.20


Today is a very special day as it is Remembrance Day.


Remembrance Day is held on the 11th of November — the 11th day of the 11th month of the year. A two-minute silence is always held at 11 a.m. to remember the millions who have died at war. If you would like to join in with the two minute silence, you can do it at home!


Remembrance Day was first held in 1919, one year after the First World War ended. It is sometimes known as Armistice Day.


On Remembrance Day, people will lay wreaths of poppies on statues and monuments to remember all the soldiers who died for us.


Today we use Remembrance Day to remember all those who have died since the First World War.


I would like you to spend some time today reflecting on Remembrance day and creating your own piece of artwork. This could be decorating a remembrance cross, drawing a picture or creating some artwork on Purplemash.


Here are some ideas:
