"Many thanks for the wonderful National School Assembly, which was live from the Tower of London today. My class were very moved by the whole experience and we will be using the questions posed during the assembly in our lessons this week. A very professional and thought provoking production. Well done to all involved." Rebecca Reeve at Upton Meadows Primary School, Northampton

Our video assembly can be used to prompt reflection and discussion by asking three simple questions, to help transform pupils' understanding of remembrance. Question 1: Why should we remember? Question 2: Why was 100 years significant? Question 3: How do you want to remember?
