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.
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
National Memorial Arboretum
The National Memorial Arboretum, which is part of the Royal British Legion, is the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance. Whilst restrictions currently mean the Arboretum is only able to welcome a limited number of school visits, its range of new sessions have been designed to bring fascinating stories to life for classes, virtual student groups and home learning.
The resources include short videos, engaging case studies and test your knowledge quizzes, helping young people learn more about trailblazing women in war, how medicine introduced in times of conflict still helps our society today, and the experiences of young people during the Second World War. The activities are free to download and are designed for key stages two and three students.
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.
