Remembrance Day can be a very emotive day for a lot of people and appreciating people have different ways of dealing with things is important. I had compiled a pack of various posters and images that could prompt conversation if they wanted to freely talk to me about things. It's not a subject I pushed people to talk about however I was there if they were happy to give their views and talk to me of their pride about some family members.
Using the writing frames is a great little activity we have done several times now. They could have been filled with any thoughts they may have about Remembrance Day or if they were happy to tell me what they'll be thinking of during the 2 minutes silence.
On the day itself we gathered in the lounge to watch the service and parade. We will be paused for 2 minutes to remember all the sacrifices that were made.
Lest we forget.
