Remembrance Day 2021

This year’s Remembrance Sunday will be marked on 14th November, with Remembrance Day three days earlier on Thursday 11th November 2021.

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.

I will be filming a new 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. This will be available from 1st November on a link that will be provided here.

Arctic Star is my first naval story for children, having previously written books about the Army  (Over the LineArmistice Runner and The Last Try) and RAF (Flyboy, Spitfire, Typhoon and Rugby Academy). D-Day Dog is also about the reserves and the paratroopers.

All my other FREE WW1 and WW2 literacy resources are available from here:
or here:
and they include :

      • Be a Trench Runner memory challenge game for the school hall.
      • Black out poetry sheets with instructions and certificates.
      • 10 discussion points about war for Y5 to Y9.
      • Book cover prediction sheets with questions encouraging the children to think about what a book might be about.
      • Downloadable posters.
      • First chapters of all my historical fiction books.
      • Videos about the settings of my books, filmed at the Somme and on the D-Day beaches.
      • Remembrance Day 2020 Literacy Certificate
      • And much much more.
