Remembrance Day Activity Pack - Writing Poems & More - 2018 UPDATE

Spend a full day or even more with all these resources based around Remembrance Day!

I have included a Literacy unit plan including a Remembrance Day segment suitable for years 3-6 based on comments made, although this is designed to be a massive amount of resources to ‘dip into’ on the day.
This includes…

-A Powerpoint I made to introduce Remembrance day with included poems to read to the children so they can write their own.
-Acrostic Poem Templates
-Planning (please note this is under ‘Creating images weekly plan’) in the resources.

  • This follows on from Bonfire night planning.
    -Comprehension , unique, questions and answers.
  • A Fantastic Veterans Day Video
    -Information about Poppy Day
    -Information sheet about Poppies
    -Using a dictionary activity
    -Lots of additional activities
    -Newspaper articles uniquely writted designed to discuss England and the FIFA Poppy Ban from the England
    football match (two years ago.)

    NB: An EXCELLENT movie is 'The Piano' - this is absolutely perfect, emotional for the occasion and can be used in assemblies or the classroom to promote discussion.
