St Mark’s Church of England Primary School

We wanted to bring the First World War to life for pupils and to raise pupils’ awareness of the golden threads linking their lives today back to the First World War generation, ensuring that Remembrance is understood and available to all, and handed to the next generation.

As part of the downloadable lesson plans we produced in partnership with the National Literacy Trust, children were asked to write a thank you letter to an individual. The letter paid tribute to their huge contribution both during the war and for how they helped shape the world after the war ended.

These are the Thank You letters from pupils at St Mark’s Church of England Primary School.
