Age: 11–16

Time requirement: assembly 15 minutes, lesson 15–60 minutes.

What is Remembrance? Why do we remember? How different people remember? Ask students to reflect on and take ownership of their relationship with Remembrance.

These resources include materials for an assembly and lesson, both including a short film featuring reflections from current Army personnel, young people and founder of BlackPoppyRose, Selena Carty. The assembly defines Remembrance, looks at the different people we might remember and provides examples of Remembrance events, both traditional and modern. The lesson looks in greater detail at the history of Remembrance from 1914 to the present day, as well as exploring how different people commemorate Remembrance in the UK. Students are then challenged to create their own act of Remembrance for their school community.

The Remembrance resources could be used as part of your school's Remembrance Day events or as part of the general learning curriculum. The resources link to PSHE / Health and Wellbeing and History curriculums.
