Learning Resources

Cross-curricular toolkits have been developed to support both the Poppies Tour and 14-18 NOW commissions.

Aimed at 9 – 13 years olds, the lesson plans offer a powerful springboard into exploring the themes of the First World War and the value of using art to promote a rich response in the classroom across Literacy, Art and Design and History.

The packs below work well as standalone units to explore or in full as part of a scheme of work.

I’m now inspired in so many ways and have practical ideas to take back to the classroom which will enrich the curriculum
