Although primarily aimed at the History curriculum, it can also be used to support literacy and aspects of Citizenship, PSHE and RE. Geography and Maths activities are included. The pack should be used as a starting point for certain topics, or to inspire primary teachers to complementary routes on tackling these themes. The pack can be used to support the current areas of the National Curriculum2 for the following units:
* History - Key Stages 1 and 2, Units 9, 13, 17 and 20. Key Stage 3, The First and Second World Wars, including the Holocaust.
* Citizenship - Key stage 1-4: The identities behind Britain today. Understanding Human Rights. Challenging racism and discrimination. War, conflict and peace. Identity and diversity. Issues supporting rights and responsibilities.
* ICT


What is in the pack:
* PowerPoint presentation Remembrance_Activities_Images.ppt [brings together all the images and links to other files, plus notes for teachers. N.B. In the Notes for each slide (under PowerPoint go to VIEW > NORMAL) there are the suggested aims and activities you might cover.]
