Celebration Day - Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day 2023

Every year the country comes together for Remembrance Sunday.

Remembrance Day is on Saturday this year - and marks the actual day World War 1 ended, at 11am, on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. Remembrance Sunday is also marked each year, and usually falls on the second Sunday in November.

The Royal Family will lay wreaths at the Cenotaph and the UK will have a moment of silence at 11 o'clock on that day, as part of the commemorations.

This is an opportunity for people to remember those who sadly lost their lives in the War, and those who have died in wars around the world. This is marked by holding a two-minute silence, and traditionally we wear a red poppy to mark Remembrance Day.

Classes have been preparing artwork, listening to poems and finding out about Remembrance Day.
