Remembrance 2018 : Armistice centenary Resources

Tom Palmer has developed a set of free resources and ideas alongside Armistice Runner to develop literacy skills and help children understand the significance of this November’s centenary of the end of the First World War. This is to support his new book Armistice Runner which has been written for 9+ and published by Barrington Stoke.

All available from here

  • Videos of Tom talking about the Armistice in significant First World War settings in France.

  • The Armistice Runner Challenge, a free memory and PE game.  Imagine what it was like to be a trench runner …

  • Preview of the book – featuring chapters 1-3.

  • SPAG worksheets and powerpoints based around the Armistice centenary through themes of history, memory, dementia and sport.

  • Public events where your pupils can meet Tom and hear about Armistice Runner this autumn.

  • Colouring sheets draw a landscape to colour in for the Armistice Runner characters Lily (running today) and Ernest (a trench runner in the First World War)

  • Ten national and local opportunities that schools in the UK can take to mark the Armistice centenary this November.
