Every year we remember men and women who have died in wars. Remembrance Sunday is always held on the 2nd Sunday in November.

Remembrance Day is always held on 11th November. Do you know why? It is because it was at 11 o’clock on the morning of 11th November in 1918 that World War One ended. Everybody was very happy as you can imagine.

Now every year a 2 minute silence is held on 11th November so people can remember those people who have died in any war and not just World War One.

Lots of people buy a poppy and wear it on their coat to show they care.

Buying a poppy is a good thing to do because the money is used to help lots of families and older people who have been affected by wars.

You can colour in a picture of me and blue mouse and red mouse playing in a poppy field.

Did you know there are lots of Remembrance sites across Europe? Is there one near where you live? You could ask your grandparents or your mum and dad and write to me to let me know what you find.
