Remembrance Live Lesson

BBC Live Lessons will mark the centenary of the Armistice - the end of the First World War - with a creative writing lesson for primary students in collaboration with 14-18 NOW.

This is an opportunity for your school to be a part of a collective moment of reflection ahead of a weekend of national commemorative events.

Content for the Live Lesson has been designed to tie in with a free 14-18 NOW Armistice resource pack, linked to Danny Boyle's Pages of the Sea commemoration event, asking communities to gather on beaches to say thank you and goodbye to the millions who left their shores during World War One.

The pack is being sent to all primary schools and available to download on 22nd October.

Join the special Remembrance Live Lesson on 9 November
