World War 1 Memorials: Behind Every Name Lies a Story - Workshop (1 day)

World War 1 Memorials - Behind Every Name Lies a Story

In this workshop your students will spend a day at the University learning how to research the people named on a war memorial.

This workshop focuses on the war memorial in the University's Armstrong Building but the skills your students learn during this workshop can be applied to war memorials nearer to school or home. Students will be shown how to use online search tools to find out about the fallen and will also use archival resources in the University Library.

"This brought a sense of reality to the work. The children realised that the people that died in the war were local, with families that came from their local area. This definitely enhanced their learning experience."Key Stage 2 teacher
"It had a huge impact on their knowledge on WW1, and the effects it had on the community in our local area."Key Stage 2 teacher
