Bringing the importance of Remembrance to schools and young people

Learning about Remembrance

Learning Pack for Schools and Young People - 2014/15

Learning Pack 2014-15

Our FREE Learning Pack is produced foro use with the accompanying CD ROM and DVD disk set, as a learning resource for a range of subjects including History, English and Citizenship, for Key Stages 1-4 and older students. 

It contains in-depth historical information, downloadable classroom resources, lesson plans, assembly ideas and witness testimonies in the form of case studies.

These Remembrance-focused materials are reviewed and updated every year and are sent to schools and learning groups free of charge as part of the Legion's commitment to promoting Remembrance to younger people. 

All our learning resources are available, free of charge, all year round.

With a foreword by noted historian Professor Sir Hew Strachan, the 24-page learning pack for the academic year 2014/15 also contains a First World War Centenary - 100 Years of Remembrance wallchart. This poster would be ideal for classroom or event displays, Remembrance activities and assemblies.

We also produce a four-disk CD Rom and DVD set, providing an extensive amount of archive and contemporary information to teachers, students and all those working with young people. This disk set, also available free of charge, is produced each year and the 2014/15 version is now available.
