Remembrance Day is a day to remember people who fought and died in the war. It is on 11th November. On that day in 1918 came the end of World War I. In many countries, people wear a poppy on Remembrance Day and for a few days before. The remembrance poppy is an artificial flower to commemorate those who died in the war. People bring wreaths made of poppies to Remembrance Day ceremonies. The poppy is a symbol to show they remember the wars and the soldiers who fought in them. Poppies were chosen as a symbol because they often grew in battlefields after the soldiers stopped fighting.
At Ladywood, we wanted to commemorate Remembrance Day through the creation of poppy-related art and showcase this on our own online art gallery. We will be selling the children's artwork on 11 November at a cost of £2 which will go to support the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. Please make your contribution on the school Gateway app. Thank you for your support.
Please join us at St Luke's Church on Sunday 14 November where representatives of the school council will lay our wreath.
