Our Key Stage 3 teaching materials for 11-14 year olds allow for teachers and educators to discuss how we remember different kinds of service and sacrifice through the prisms of the First World War, Second World War and through the concept of Remembrance itself.

The materials have been created with the purpose of developing key skills for GCSE’s and to be used across the curriculum in a number of subjects, such as Art, Geography, English, History and PSHE.

To provide different and interesting ways for pupils to engage with these materials we have created a range of learning options; in class, at home, and whole school and wider community projects. These include full lessons that incorporate opportunities to share pupils’ work with their parents, ready-to-go art exhibitions and a creative writing activity encouraging children to write radio scripts – a wonderful opportunity to learn through creative expression.

Key Stage 3 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
  • Ready-made art project to share with the school, parents and wider community
  • Photographs, exhibition tips, discussion prompts and worksheets to guide children in exploring, discussing and creating their own creative responses to the challenges of WWII compared to modern day

  • A resource pack of themed creative writing activities
  • Opportunity to explore the components of a successful radio script and write their own
