Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is a special day in November. People wear a special symbol called a poppy. On Remembrance Day we remember people who have suffered and died in wars. The First World War began in 1914. Millions of men joined the army and went to fight in the war. War ended at 11 0’ clock in the morning on 11th November 1918.The paper poppies we wear on Remembrance Day are like the real poppies that grew in the battlefields of the First World War.

On Saturday 11th November 2017 pupils from Pyrcroft Grange Primary School laid a wreath at the Chertsey memorial. As we took part in the two minute silence it was a great opportunity to reflect on how thankful we are for the people who go to war to make the society we live in a better place.
