This year’s Remembrance Sunday will be marked on 8th November, with Remembrance Day following on Wednesday 11th November.
To help schools mark the occasion and link it to developing literacy in the classroom, I am offering a range of FREE resources for schools to use throughout the week, based around my books Over the Line, D-Day Dog, Armistice Runner and the Wings RAF series.
There will be a pre-recorded twenty-minute assembly aimed at KS2 and KS3 for use in the hall or for schools to stream throughout classrooms, where I will talk about the real First and Second World War soldiers, airmen and women and sailors that have inspired the characters in my books. Available from Friday 6th November on my YouTube channel: youtube.com/user/TomPalmerBlackOp with a link to be posted here.
There will be also be a live online FACEBOOK Q&A session on the afternoon of 11th November 1.30-2.30 p.m. from here : https://www.facebook.com/tompalmerauthor/ You can submit questions for me to answer by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org up until 10th November or on the day.
All my other FREE WW1 and WW2 literacy resources are available from here:

- Be a Trench Runner memory challenge game for the school hall.
