On Remembrance Day we come together to reflect upon the service and sacrifice of the British and commonwealth Armed Forces who fought and died during times of war.
Our Author of the Week, Bali Rai, has written all about British colonies' roles in the First and Second World Wars for the book Home Again: Stories about Coming Home From War.
Head to our Virtual School Library to read Bali Rai's short stories, A Sense of A Home and Memories from Home for free and hear his top tips on writing your own story.
There are also National Literacy Trust and Royal British Legion writing activities to download help you to learn more about Remembrance Day.
Activities include creating your own World War 2 radio advert, discovering a tasty wartime recipe and a guide to writing your own war time story.
