Remembrance Day, on November 11th, marks the anniversary of when World War One ended. It ended on November 11th 1918 at 11 am, which is why many people hold a two-minute silence at 11 am on this day. The War was officially ended with the signing of the Armistice, which is why the day is also called Armistice Day.
Roberts Primary School were invited to attend the Remembrance Day service in Gornal on Friday 11th November 2022.
We took Year 5 and 6 representatives from our Curriculum Council and who were our Well-Being Ambassadors to attend the service.
Remembrance Day gives people the chance to remember those who fought and lost their lives during the war and honour their memory. It makes sure that we never forget the past, and that those who died didn't die in vain.
The children listened to a short service about why we remember those people on the 11th November and then placed a wreath on the memorial.
Thank you very much to the Gornal Royal British Legion branch for inviting us.
