Armistice Day also known as Remembrance Day, it marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, back in 1918.
A two minute silence is held at 11am to remember the people who have died in wars. The first two minute silence in Britain was held on 11 November 1919, when King George V asked the public to observe a silence at 11am. This was one year after the end of World War I. He made the request so "the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the glorious dead".
There are usually ceremonies at war memorials, cenotaphs and churches throughout the country.
Class 5AM presented a special Remembrance Day assembly to remember the people who died in wars.
