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

Together Across The Commonwealth

Key Stages 1-3

Our new Together Across The Commonwealth resources look at collaboration between Britain and the Commonwealth, from the 5 millions volunteers who served alongside British troops in the Second World War to the diversity of modern Britain today.

With Commonwealth Day and International Women’s Day coming up on 8 March 2021, explore the contributions of women from across the Commonwealth through written accounts, photographs, illustrations and film.

Ideal for classes, virtual student groups and home learning, these resources are a great way to prepare children to take part in Remembrance this year.

Also available in Welsh.
