Juniors Learns About Remembrance Day

Posted: 23rd November 2012 | Category: Year 1, Year 2, Years 1 & 2

Year 1 and Year 2 joined together to explore Remembrance Day to find out why we wear poppies and the importance of November 11th, which is a celebration of the end of World War I.

The children watched a powerpoint presentation and sang along to the well known war song “It’s a long way to Tipperary”.

They heard that war was dangerous and that a lot of people died.  The children learnt that the poppy has been used as a symbol of Remembrance for all the people who died during the war since poppies began to grow on the battlefields after the war had ended. 

The children wrote about what they have learned and have created a beautiful Poppy Day display in the Year 2 classroom.
