These lesson plans and assemblies are designed to help children understand what Remembrance is and why it is still relevant today.

In addition to the materials available below, we are pleased to offer the latest version of our popular Remembrance assembly pack for secondary schools for download as well.

Remember Together Assembly

This assembly pack looks at all Commonwealth and Allied nations who came to Britain’s aid during the Second World War, and without whom victory would not have been possible. 

We offer an introductory standalone assembly, or if you wish to go into more detail, you may also download the whole set, which includes the introduction assembly along with 4 additional assemblies. These look at the vital contribution made by the Commonwealth and Allies in three key battles; Monte Cassino, D-Day, and Kohima and Imphal.

These lesson plans commemorate the First World War generation - those who served, sacrificed, and changed our world.

They examine legacies that positively impact our lives today, such as the photographic and written accounts of war which help us to engage with, and better understand, the immeasurable impact of war.
