Audley Primary School: Exploring Wartime Britain for Armistice Day

Two boys writing and revising for their SATs while wearing Now Press Play pink headphones.

Audley Primary School have been using now>press>play’s World War 2 Experience to teach their KS2 children more about life in Britain during the Second World War and to understand the history behind Remembrance Day.

It is always great to hear what children think of our Experiences, and we would like to thank Audley Primary School for sending us the children’s responses to the Experience. You can see some of the pupils’ thoughts below.

Remembrance Day

At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, people across Britain join together in a two-minute silence to remember the nation’s war dead.

We hold this silence at 11:00am on 11th November every year, as this is the time in 1918 when the First World War finished, and guns fell silent along the Western Front in Europe.

War memorials, offices, schools, town halls, and churches all hold silences as the country joins together to remember Remembrance Day. People also wear poppies to show their respect for those who gave their lives.
