Remembrance Day is a memorial day commemorated on 11 November and it marks the end of the First World War. It is a day to mourn and every year on the 11th hour of the 11th day on the 11th month we fall silent for 1 minute to remember those who served their country during the war. To commemorate Remembrance Day we have 8 new Remembrance Day Posters that can be used as a display within the setting. These posters share images and information and can be used to support discussions with children about Remembrance Day including information on Remembrance Day traditions, importance of poppies, about Remembrance Day etc. It's important we spare a moment on this day to remember those brave enough to serve our country.
