Darren encourages schools to teach WW1 Remembrance

Darren Jones, MP for Bristol North West, has written to all Primary schools in Bristol North West encouraging them to take part in a free scheme which educates pupils on the importance of WW1 Remembrance.

Darren said:

“During early October, I contacted all 29 primary schools in Bristol North West, inviting them to use the free lesson and assembly plans supplied by the Royal British Legion and National Literacy Trust. These plans can be used in English, Science and History lessons – as well as school assemblies – to ensure Remembrance, and the importance of peace, is universally understood. The plans commemorate the First World War generation – those who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

As we approach Remembrance Sunday, I urge all schools to get involved”!

Here’s a copy of the letter Darren sent to Badocks Wood Academy in Southmead:
