Remembrance Day

At Woodlands we have been looking at the history behind Remembrance Day and the significance of the poppy.

Each year since 1921 poppys have been sold to commemorate those who died in WW1. The flower became a symbol of hope after bright red poppys grew in Flanders Field where a number of tragic battles had taken place. The fighting ended on the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month. This day is now known as Remembrance Day and at 11am a minutes silence is observed to remember those who lost their lives.

We have poppys and wristbands available to buy in the school office.
