World War One War Memorials School Packs

  • 29th October 2014

As part of the Worcester World War One Hundred project we are producing resources for schools to help them with a local focus to looking at the World war One.

 

 The first is based around war memorials and tracing soldiers, which many schools are undertaking. In the pack are lesson plans and ideas. The majority of this relates to Key Stage 2, but the principles of investigating the lives of soldiers can be used in secondary schools too as part of projects.

The next being produced is about Worcestershire during the war, looking at the experience on the home front. This is still being worked on but we can send you a copy as soon as it is available if you let us know.

We are in the process of e-mailing the completed pack to schools, but if your school hasn’t received one please email us on explorethepast@worcestershire.gov.uk or ring 01905 766352 and we’ll happily send you a copy.
