Children talk about different ways to remember the First World War and why it is important not to forget it.
Child 1: How would you remember the First World War?
Child 2: Monuments and memorial services are like having a conversation with society about remembering the war and being a part of it. Some people need something smaller and more intimate to respond to. And some people need something big.
Child 3: As well as a moment of silence, there should also be a discussion, so we can really reflect on what people in the war did. And we could also have people who have fought in any wars to come into school. And we could talk to them, and they could talk to us, and we could really understand about how hard it was for the soldiers and their families in WWI.
Child 4: Every year to remember World War, me and my uncle [go] in his back garden, I get to plant the poppy seed right in the center of the garden. And then I paint a white cross, and he plants it in the ground. And we do this every year.
Child 5: This is our history. We need to help people remember the past in order to live our future.
