Remembrance Day

remembranceday.bmp3W and Mrs Beddoe prepared a wonderful tribute to our Armed Forces yesterday at their Remembrance Day Assembly. The children were very respectful as they payed homage to all those who have fought in war and remembered the significance of this date and time in world history. Specifically, we remember the day of November 11 at 11 am in the year 1918. At 11 am on the 11th of November 1918, the guns in World War 1 fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month gained a special significance in the years after the First World War. From the moment fighting ceased, this day became universally associated with the remembrance of those who had died in the war. For many years it was called Armistice Day. Thank you 3W!
