On the 11th November at 11 o’clock the First World War ended and always at 11o’clock, nearly the whole kingdom has two minutes silence to remember all the people that risked their lives for us to be free.

At Nevill Road Junior School, we have made a display of poppies in the entrance hall to mark the occasion. Mrs Dale and Mrs Lane came up with the idea for nearly every child in the school to make or draw a poppy. They made a replica of a cenotaph and then they assembled them into a display of over 300 poppies.

Megan in 6R said: “We did it to remember people in the war.” Hallie in 6S added: “The poppies were on the battlefield so it was chosen as a symbol.”

Mrs McConnell, midday assistant, said that she thought the whole school was completely silent at 11 o’clock and all of the children were thinking about the soldiers.
