This is a PowerPoint to accompany an assembly based on Remembrance for use around 11th November. It covers the focus for remembrance, why it is important and has the story of the sacrifice of the Hearts of Midlothian 1st division football team as the main focus. When music is added to the start and end, makes a very moving assembly (some staff and pupils even left with tears in their eyes last year). Should you use this resource, please leave feedback. Thank you.
This is a video I have made following a trip to the trenches. It is backed by 'only remembered' by The McCalmans and In Flanders Field Poem both taken from the CD : Far, Far from Ypres produced by Greentrax Recordings Ltd.
My husband is laying flowers on the grave of his great uncle, the soldier who is shown in the photograph.
This resource is a fun way to start the year. The presentation has ten questions each for the subjects:
It is suitable for upper Key Stage Two and Lower Key Stage Three / ESL / SEN

A powerpoint to share with a KS2 or KS3 class on Rememberance day/week.
Contains key discussion points and war poetry to share and discuss. This promotes high quality Speaking and Listening.
Used this in Year 6 and the poetry that was produced was of a very high standard.
You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different activities and objects being shown in each of the photos.
You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about Remembrance Day.
The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different Remembrance Day activities. The students can then discuss what they think each one was representing.
The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
