How Can I Explain Remembrance Sunday to My Child?


Your child may ask you why people are wearing poppies at this time of year. You can help them understand  by talking to them about the war and why we remember those who helped to keep us safe.  The BBC has produced a beautiful animation entitled Poppies which helps explain Remembrance Sunday to younger children. It can be found on the CBeebies website here
