Remembrance Day is celebrated in Commonwealth nations to honour soldiers who laid down their life during World War I. When the clock struck 11 on the eleventh day of the eleventh month of year 1918, World War was officially declared over. Remembrance Day is hence celebrated on November 11th each year.
Today, as a school we watched a clip to understand more about this day. The ‘Remembrance’ video helps children to reflect on the 2014 centenary of World War One and to explore why remembrance has become part of national life in the UK and other countries.
