This Remembrance Day we’ve got some really inspiring and poignant Remembrance Day crafts, worksheets, activities and teaching resources to help children understand the meaning behind this important day. These resources are suitable for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 as they can be adapted to fit the needs of your children or class.
Remembrance Day Information PowerPoint
Use our Remembrance Day Information PowerPoint either for class assembly or as a way of prompting discussion with your class. The PowerPoint is fully editable so if the wording is too tricky or too easy, you can quickly adapt it to meet the needs of your class. The PowerPoint explains the meaning behind Remembrance Day, why we wear poppies and some basic information about World War One.
Updated for 2020 – we now have a NEW Remembrance Day PowerPoint specifically aimed at EYFS and KS1, with age appropriate information and pictures.
