In 2018, the world is remembering 100 years since the end of the world's first truly global war - World War One

This year, many events are taking place across the UK and abroad to mark the significance of the centenary of the end of World War One.

What are you doing to mark the day? Have you been doing events or activities at school to remember it?

Or are you doing something special with friends and family over the weekend?

Take a look below how kids across the UK have been remembering World War One.

    At 6:45PM I'm attending a special event of the 100 years of the end of WW1 organised by our local parish council and let me just say it involves the lighting of a giant beacon at our love church cemetery it'll be a little different but I'll enjoy it it's also taking place in the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man it's also taking place overseas (outside the UK) like New Zealand, Australia, Canada & the USA and so on.

    My local Scout Group attended a service in Church. At 11am, I laid down a wreath from our group, on the local war memorial, as a token of thanks and remembrance. It was a really special experience to place a wreath to mark the end of WW1.

    In our village, the Brownies and scouts are doing a poppy parade to the church, where there will be a poppy service.

    I raised money for Poppy Appeal at my school by selling poppies. I feel it's important for me to wear a poppy as my Great Grandad was in the Navy in WW2.
