Session Outline

This interactive session investigates Remembrance and personal stories from the First World War to today.

'What a fantastic opportunity for the children! Genuine artefacts combined with state-of-art technology! What more could children ask for!'

The Ministry of Memory is in turmoil; all records of Remembrance have been wiped. Can your students save the day?

Guided by audio headsets and performance challenges your students will be tasked with rediscovering Remembrance, uncovering past and present remembrance rituals. Will they even create a new way to remember?

This innovative programme allows active exploration of curriculum subjects in relation to real historic artefacts within the museum.

Learning Objectives

  • Investigate existing Remembrance rituals and their significance today
  • Explore personal stories from The First World War to today, including nurse Edith Cavell
  • Use movement to create new ways to remember people who have experienced conflict
