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 

Key Stages 2-3

Design your own Remembrance Glade

In partnership with the National Memorial Arboretum, we have created a Remembrance Glade at the Arboretum in Staffordshire. Using symbolic forms, features and plants it is designed to provoke reflection and contemplation.

Designed to suit children with different access to green spaces, these resources help children explore the Glade and understand how the use of shape, colour, sound and other elements can be used to create a beautiful space.

Design templates and top tips support children in their creativity and engagement with Remembrance, whether it be in a garden, window box or diorama.

Also available in Welsh.

We've partnered with Girlguiding, Cadets, and Scouts to create new Remembrance activities for 2020. Our resources are designed so everyone can connect and engage with Remembrance, discovering links between their own experiences of this unique year and those of the Second World War generation.
