Why do we remember the 11th of November? Who was the Unknown Warrior? What is the meaning of the Cenotaph?
Lead your pupils in exploring these keys questions, to develop their understanding of Remembrance Day and why the sacrifice of previous generations must never be forgotten. The British Army has created these resources to support schools and colleges in their Remembrance Day commemorations.
The resource includes an assembly and supporting lesson, with clear supporting teacher guidance on the subject of Remembrance. Split into four 15-minute sections to allow for flexible delivery, it provokes discussion into the origins of Remembrance Day. This could be a short tutor time session or a full PSHE lesson.
Worksheets are provided for each of the four sections of the lesson, which are also suitable for home-based work.
