Teachers and parents can help children and teenagers understand the importance of Remembrance by using a new range of free resources which has been launched by the Royal British Legion and National Literacy Trust.
Pupils can discover how Britain’s national Remembrance traditions have evolved over the past 100 years, engage in different community and national commemorations, and be encouraged to imagine what Remembrance might look like in the future.
Children can also learn how the poppy has become an enduring symbol of support for our armed forces.
The RBL’s 2021 teaching kits, for Key Stages 1 to 5, include new downloadable assembly plans, which can be used to observe the two-minute silence on 11 November, whole school projects and stories featuring award-winning authors Terry Pratchett and David Olusoga.
The resources, available in English and Welsh, can be downloaded here.
