Remembrance Day is an important date in the calendar and it is very important for children to learn a little about its meaning, even at an early age.
Children have been learning about the meaning of the Poppy on Remembrance Day. Staff at nursery encouraged children to understand what Remembrance Day was about and why we wear Poppy’s by supporting children to create their own Poppy out of different materials.
We were all delighted to play our small part in Remembrance Day.
Remembrance Day is a Memorial Day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.
Each year, the nation unites to make sure that no-one is forgotten and to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
The red poppy is a symbol of both Remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.
Poppies are worn as a show of support for the Armed Forces community. The poppy is a well-known and well-established symbol, one that carries a wealth of history and meaning with it. Wearing a poppy is still a very personal choice, reflecting individual experiences and personal memories.
