World War One ideas for primary and secondary school teachers.
Today marks the 100th anniversary of a pivotal moment in recent British history – the day of the first German attack of World War One on the British mainland. There will be more key WWI anniversaries over the next 4 years, and teachers of all subjects can incorporate these events into the curriculum.
While there isn’t enough time for extensively teaching World War One on this day or in this month alone, World Class Teachers offers advice to both primary and secondary school teachers to tackle this subject during the centenary.
We have put together some teaching tips and resources, from the incredible exhibits at the Imperial War Museum to utilising BBC and more, to help you through until 2019.
