This is a creative way to tackle controversial questions surrounding Remembrance, the armed forces, war and militarism.
This attractive poster and the accompanying activities elicit debate and discussion about the reality and ethics of military involvement in British society. Armed Forces Day is a particularly relevant time to open up this discussion in your Citizenship, PSHE lessons and meet your SMSC requirements. It also lends itself to Philosophy for Children sessions at primary or secondary.
Everything shown is ‘real’ - something that does happen on the streets of Britain.
