If you’re a teacher and would like to include Thank You in your lessons, please download our free lesson plan resources for key stage 2, 3 and 4 English, Art and Music subject areas.

With the dawn of the World War One centenary upon us, The Royal British Legion invite you and your school to say; “Thank You”.

Thank you to those who fought for Britain’s freedom. Thank you to those who worked hard on the Home Front. Thank you to those whose childhood was swallowed up by war, as the country’s upkeep fell on the shoulders of the young. Thank to each and every person who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

100 years on from the World War One armistice, The Royal British Legion have created Thank You: a movement to reflect on and show thanks for the contribution of the WW1 generation, and the impact that their sacrifices have had on our lives today.

To enable schools to engage with Thank You easily and effectively, we’re bringing the movement into your classroom. Our partner, Never Such Innocence, are running a creative competition for young people at key stage 2, 3 and 4, encouraging artistic entries in the formats of Music, Art and Poetry. The competition can be entered as a class or individually.

To support teachers with engaging their classes in Thank You, we’ve created a variety of downloadable lesson plans and teacher support materials that you are free to use.

Please be aware that the competition closing date is 11 September 2018. Good luck!

Look out for further lesson plans for the Autumn term, with the National Literary Trust, to enable you to become a Thank You school in the lead up to the Armistice weekend.
