This resource can be used as a standalone remembrance assembly commemorating the First World War, or extended as a part of a year 6 English lesson guiding pupils through public speaking and preparing their own remembrance speech.
Introduce your class to World War 1, life during this time, and the role of women during the war. Using the information provided, pupils will compose a short narrative and musical piece to accompany an authentic newsreel clip and promote a particular job.
This practical D.T. and art lesson invites pupils to bring stories from the relatives of WW1 soldiers to life in a wonderfully creative way by building a 'tunnel book.' A series of WW1 fact files accompany the lesson providing real life anecdotes, images and moving content.
Animals were key to life in World War 1, some made an invaluable contribution, others made life almost intolerable. Listen to audio files from family members which bring alive life in the trenches and explore just how these creatures changed lives. Pupils are invited to write in role as an animal - friend or foe - creating a diary entry from a very different perspective.
