Learning about Remembrance Day

In Year 2 this week we have started our new History topic about World War 2. The children are very excited to learn all about the war and what life was like during this time. We started the week by talking about why we commemorate Remembrance Day. We made our own poppies for a wreath for the classroom display. At 11am on Wednesday, we held a two minute silence in our classroom to remember those who had died in the war. The children were very respectful and thoughtful at this time. We then found out about War Memorials and why they are so significant. We looked at some pictures of local and important war memorials including the one in Ramsbottom. We then had somne fun building our own war memorial out of Lego. Well done year 2 for all your super work this week!
