Our Key Stage 2 Remembrance materials use a range of themes that allow children to look at service and Remembrance in different ways.

Focusing primarily on the Second World War, whilst also looking at both the First World War and the concept of Remembrance itself, our resources cover a variety of product types for teachers and educators to engage children in these topics; lesson plans, assemblies, book clubs and bitesize activities. These allow for children to be taught at a class, year or school-wide level.

Our materials allow Remembrance to be transferable across the curriculum, crossing over into subjects such as Art, Geography and Maths in addition to English, History and PSHE. These lessons reflect the requirements of the current curriculum whilst also developing the essential skills they require as they move into secondary school and beyond through creative tasks, discussion and research.

Key Stage 2 Remembrance teaching tools include:

  • Tools suitable for leading English, History, Geography, Maths, Art and PSHE lessons, all linked to the school curriculum
  • National Literacy Trust approved materials
  • Full lesson plans focused on the events of the Second World War and parallel experiences from the pandemic
  • Ready-made book club, which can be used in lessons, libraries or even at home – complete with teacher support materials. The study text is the award winning 'Now or Never' by Bali Rai - the story of a young Indian muslim volunteer soldier and his experiences in the Second World War
  • Bitesize Resources for quick and easy Remembrance education activities covering a range of topics and themes
