Memories from the Front Line by Henry Chew

Memories from the Front Line by Henry Chew

This is a primary source written by a soldier of the Great War. The copyright owner has uploaded this source for educational purposes.The source is a diary written 1915-1917 describing the experience of warfare in Egypt and on the Western Front. It can be used as a basis for a lesson or series of lessons comparing different sources from the First World War. It could also be given as extra reading/as and extension activity.Two reviews from Amazon.co.uk:"This book is very different from many other memoirs and books that I have read from and about this era. It is very interesting to hear what the common man experienced during the great war as the point of view brought across is usually from senior officers and historians. Henry Chews journey is a remarkable one and while some maps would have helped to get a better grasp on the geographical journey no such visual aids were required for the very emotional journey.As a non-historian i sometimes found it difficult to follow some of the military terms and it would have been nice if the editor would have explained these in footnotes or similar, but mostly I found myself wishing that Henry would have written much more about more or less all aspects of the book.I really enjoyed this book and it did make me go and look up a few battles that Henry Chew took part in. I have always had an interest in this era and this book certainly described it from a different view.""A very moving account of a young man's experiences in north Africa and on the Somme in World War One. Although this short book comprises of diary entries which are often in note form, they give an incredible insight into the ordinary soldier's experience on the front line, from witnessing aeroplanes in action for the first time, to dealing with the heat of Africa and the mud of the trenches, to the excitement of something other that bully beef on the menu. A must read for anyone wanting to discover the realities so many young men faced fighting for King and Country."

International Women's Day Assembly - 8 March

International Women's Day Assembly - 8 March

This resource includes an assembly plan and 20 slide powerpoint for Women's History Month or International Women's Day in March.It is suitable to use with KS2 or secondary aged children. The slideshow gives the opportunity to discuss why we might focus on women's history, before moving on to give details on how women's circumstances changed from ancient times to today. There are 10 slides which outline key achievements of 10 different women, from Marie Curie to J K Rowling.The plan gives details about how to use the slideshow. I like to lead assemblies that are interactive and relevant to the children's lives, so the plan gives plenty of opportunity for children to discuss ideas, give feedback and reflect.

Non-Jewish Victims of the Holocaust

Non-Jewish Victims of the Holocaust

This Powerpoint presentation holds back no punches and has had a powerful impact on students. It gives as overview of some of the groups subject to Nazi persecution and execution during the Holocaust: ethnic Poles, Mentally & physically disabled people, Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals, ethnic Russians and Russian prisoners of war, Gypsies, political prisoners, Christians and "asocials". I include embedded clips from YouTube and look at the survival/treatment of each of each of these groups today. Nothing in this presentation is my own. The content is disturbing, the images haunting. May we learn from the past
