Remembrance Day Resources for Primary Schools

11th November 2024

Commemorate the Armistice and teach your children about the history of war with our activities about Remembrance Day for children. KS1 and KS2 pupils can learn about why we mark the Armistice on the eleventh day of the eleventh month and can even create their own Remembrance poppies. Ideal for creating a themed classroom display!

Remembrance Day

Choose a poppy and colour it red.

Key points:

  • Did you know Remembrance Day is also known as Armistice Day? An armistice is an agreement to stop fighting a war.
  • Remembrance Day takes place on the 11th November because World War I ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, with the Germans signing of the Armistice.
