Teaching Remembrance

Remembrance brings people of all ages and backgrounds together to reflect on service and sacrifice, and join with each other in hope for a brighter, peaceful future.

We support the teaching of Remembrance across the UK and have designed a range of free teaching resources for use at school or in the home.

Exploring the concept of service before self, the resources examine the importance of Remembrance and its ongoing relevance.

Key Stage 1 |  Key stage 2 | Key Stage 3 | Key Stage 4 

All our resources are:

  • Free and linked to National Curriculum 
  • Include support for teachers and parents 
  • Differentiated to provide both support and challenge
  • Available in Welsh

Growing Remembrance through Poetry

Key Stages 1-3

Explore Remembrance with specially written Remembrance poems from renowned poets Laura Mucha, Joseph Coelho and Caleb Parkin. Inspired by their experiences of our Remembrance Glade at the National Memorial Arboretum, these resources bring Remembrance to life in new ways.

Through rich and varied content, including beautiful imagery from the Glade and videos from the poets, these resources are ideal for classes, virtual student groups and home learning and a great way to prepare children to take part in Remembrance this year.
