Armistice Day, which honours personnel who have died since World War One, this year comes a day after Remembrance Sunday.

The silence took place at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month - the time the guns fell silent along the Western front in 1918, and an armistice was declared.

The Last Post was sounded across Rishworth and Heathfield Junior School by Adam Robinson, Caroline Newby, Sam Hall and Director of Music, Mr Chris Lewis, to mark the signing of the armistice.

Students and staff put down their pen or set aside their work for two minutes to remember fallen members of the armed forces
