First World War Commemorations

To accompany our special exhibition Soldiers’ Journey – From to home to war 1914 – 1918, which runs until 11 January 2015, we are offering the following sessions:

  • Hampshire’s War – The People’s Journey
    This session has been developed to compliment our exhibition Soldiers’ Journey – from home to war 1914 – 1918, which runs 11 October 2014 – 11 January 2015. Pupils will have the chance to use a range of historic sources to explore the past including photographs, artefacts and documents. The session also includes some time exploring the exhibition. For KS2, lasting 2 hours.

  • What are we remembering on Remembrance Day?
    Using Susan Varley’s book Badger’s Parting Gifts as a focus, this session has series of hands-on activities to help children understand the significance of Remembrance Day and explore ways of remembering. For KS1, lasting 1.5 hours. We recommend you extend your visit to 2 hours and spend time after your session visiting the exhibition.

  • Remembrance
    Pupils will receive a letter before their visit asking them to form a special Committee to help commemorate the people of Hampshire who died in the First World War as part of 2014’s centenary commemorations*. Through a series of activities, pupils will consider different types of commemoration and remembrance, from the traditional memorial to the contemporary wristband. For KS2, lasting 1.5 hours. We recommend you extend your visit to 2 hours and spend time after your session visiting the exhibition. *We can tailor your letter so it is more locally-focussed.
