Teaching Remembrance

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.

VE Day

As the nation comes together to honour the Second World War generation on 8 May, we have launched a range of new assembly resources suitable for 7 to 14 year olds.

Download the PowerPoint resources from our Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 pages.

These provide an overview of VE Day and how it still remains relevant today, as well as different activity suggestions.

Each of our resources has been designed to ensure that students have the right level of support and challenge that they need to understand Remembrance.

All lesson plans are also available to download in Welsh.
