Builds challenging and highly-differentiated GCSE skills into learning about the event. I have used with HA Y7, Mixed Y9 both with excellent results.
Brilliant for Paper 2 Edexcel or AQA adaption. I did this during a formal observation and it worked really well (Outstanding).
Use the Word worksheet to introduce or as a first lesson, then follow with the pair/team sheets (print on A3).
Uses competitive learning strategies to engage boys. Would make a good stand-alone lesson with war poetry or a war-based novel such as War Horse.
Development: Introduce/compare with the Sainsbury's ad (youtube), The Farm 'All Together Now' (song and lyrics) or Paul McCartney "Pipes of Peace" video/song.
