War Memorials Trust’s Learning Programme provides ideas and materials for young people in schools and youth groups, and the adults who work with them. We work to educate future generations of war memorial custodians so that they can continue our work to protect and conserve war memorials into the future.
Visits to your school
As well as using the materials on this website, you can arrange for our Learning Officer to visit your school to teach a lesson or lead an assembly or talk with your pupils on the topic of war memorials. Please use the 'School visits' link on the left to learn more.
In this section of the website you can access our materials for secondary schools. These include:
- Lesson plans and lesson resources for secondary school teachers to use with their classes
- Helpsheets for teachers giving information about war memorials and how they can be incorporated into your teaching
- Assemblies suitable for Key Stages 3 and 4 that can be adapted to your school's needs
Secondary school pupils may also find some of our youth group information sheets helpful - these contain information about war memorial topics written at an age-appropriate level.
We regularly review and update all our teaching materials. We therefore recommend you save any materials from this website that you want to keep and come back again to see new materials. We are currently adding new materials to these pages and there may be a short delay until these are all available - please bear with us while we update these.
War Memorials Trust is involved in two projects called In Memoriam 2014 and War Memorials Online, and young people can contribute to both. Further details can be found in the Youth Groups section of this website.
We value feedback from users of our learning materials and use this to continually update and improve them. If you would like to make any comments or suggestions for new resources, please visit our Feedback page.
