As we approach Remembrance period this year, the Royal British Legion have launched new resources to help children and young people remember the service that protects us and our ways of life.Register here
The Teaching Remembrance project aims to support children in understanding, exploring, and taking ownership of Remembrance, so that it continues to be a relevant and important part of our lives in the future. By engaging new generations, we hope to bring Remembrance to new audiences, as well as strengthen existing ties with cultures and communities whose relationships with Remembrance are long-established, such as the Gurkhas and the Gurkha Brigade Association.
Designed for children ages 4-18, these new materials are developed with expert partners such as the National Literacy Trust and Scholastic. Assemblies, lessons, book clubs, music projects and poetry sessions provide new ways to learn about Remembrance and Service, with rich film, photography and illustrative content complimenting detailed case studies. Free to download and suitable for use in school or at home, these resources are ideal for teachers or families who want to help young people explore and better understand the Service we remember each year.
As the Royal British Legion works to ensure that serving and ex-serving personnel and their families are supported and remembered, we hope you will join us in encouraging the next generation to take part in Remembrance.
You can browse and download all resources from the Teaching Remembrance Hub: www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/remembrance/teaching-remembrance
For the first time we will also be hosting a Remembrance Live Assembly – at 10.30 am on the 11th of November for Key Stage 2 (7-11 years) children from across the UK will have the chance to take part in a live Remembrance event, coming together to remember the service and sacrifice of those who keep us safe.
