Primary schools across the UK are invited to take the lead from Danny Boyle’s Pages of the Sea and create their own artistic responses to mark the centenary of the First World War.
14-18 NOW’s new cross curricular resources are designed to support Key Stages 1 & 2 (and their equivalents in the nations). The lesson plans navigate the themes of commemoration and remembrance through literacy and art, and encourage teachers and children to explore how we remember lives lost as a result of the First World War. Every Primary School in the UK will receive a copy of the resources and they can be downloaded for free from the 14-18 NOW and Tes websites from 22nd October.
In conjunction with BBC Teach, the BBC online platform for teachers and schools throughout the UK, there will be a half-hour Live Lesson delivered on Friday 9th November at 14:00 aimed at Key Stage 2/Second Level children aged 9-12. This interactive, live broadcast will use Danny Boyle’s Pages of the Sea, the supporting learning resources from 14-18 NOW in consultation with BBC experts to help students explore the centenary of Armistice and the significance of Remembrance Sunday using their creative writing skills.
