Remembrance Day Lesson and Activities

Remembrance Day is celebrated every year on or around the 11th of November. It's a time to remember all the brave people who fought or helped in the war. Remembrance Day was celebrated on Sunday the 8th this year. Did you see anything on the television or in your local area? 

'Christians in School' sent us a video Assembly to use in class for Remembrance Day. Watch the video and have a go at making your own Remembrance Day Art work (ideas in the document below).

For your information, there is a prayer at the end of this video. Please remind your children that lots of different religions and people celebrate Remembrance Day and that all religions are thankful for different things and pray in different ways. Maybe you can discuss this with your child.



Extra challenge: Can you write an acrostic poem about Remembrance Day? Use the sheet below to help you! Use each letter to think of a word or sentence about things you are thankful for.
