Remember them

What is Remembrance Day…….

At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years continuous warfare. The allied armies had driven the German invaders back, having inflicted heavy defeats upon them over the preceding four months. In November the Germans called for an armistice in order to secure a peace settlement. They accepted allied terms that they had to agree to  surrender.

What did we do…..

Our class made poppies and hung them on a tree outside the classroom.
