Yesterday was Remembrance Sunday. Why do we do this?.
Remembrance Sunday. This is a day when we “commemorate”
Commemoration is a special word that describes what we do on Remembrance Day. http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/0/ww1/25463539
Reflection What is this quote asking us to think about?
On Remembrance Day we also wear or place Poppies. Apart from remembering and commemorating, why else?
Poppies are also worn by many people as a sign of hope. What are we hoping for?
In Flanders Fields by John McCrae, May 1915 In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/0/ww1/25579533
How can we live together in peace in our school?
