Remembrance Day 2018. One Hundred Years since the end of World War One: 09/11/18

Remembrance Day is an important date in the calendar, this year being particularly important as we remember 100 years since the end of World War 1 and it is very important for children to learn a little about its meaning, even at an early age.


This type of learning is a very important part of our Personal, Social and Emotional Development and our British Values curriculum as well as helping the children to have a better knowledge and understanding of the world and important events in history.


At nursery we talked to the children about the many important people both men and women and animals who helped to keep us safe a long time ago. We said that the poppy flowers help us to remember and say thank you to these special people. We had lots of activities in nursery to help us to talk and think about Remembrance Day such as searching for poppies in the garden and making pictures and collages of poppies and medals. Some of the Poppies that we have made have been displayed in the village of South Normanton to share with the whole community and we also took a trip next door to the Glebe Junior School to look at some of the poppies that they had made too.


We listened to The Last Post and asked the children to listen out for this music being played on Sunday which is actually Remembrance Day and reminded them to look out for all the different places that they might see poppies over the weekend of remembrance.


We also watched a short BBC film together, to help us to think about Remembrance Day. To view the film please follow the link below:
