VE Day Learning Resources

As the national champion of Remembrance the Legion is committed to ensuring that Remembrance is understood and available to every child and community in the UK.

Understanding our shared heritage of Remembrance helps bring communities together, and ensures that we recognise the service and sacrifice of past and present generations.

We have partnered with the National Literacy Trust to create a series of free, downloadable lesson plans and assemblies aimed at Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 that can be used to explain to children of different ages and backgrounds why, how and who we Remember.
