The Bugle and the Poppy: A Remembrance Day Story
This simple colouring story is a great way to introduce kids to the importance of Remembrance Day.
Remembrance Day is a special day when people remember soldiers who fought in wars.
People wear a bright red flower called a poppy, as a symbol of remembrance.
Many people wear poppies on this day to show their respect and remember those brave soldiers who fought for their country.
There is a special moment when a bugle plays the Last Post.
This tune is played to honour and remember the soldiers who died in the wars.
When the bugle plays, everyone stands still and remembers the sacrifices made by the soldiers.
You can add this 2 minute video of the Last Post as they colour in the story.
