Fallen Fields is a project designed to help children learn about the causes and effects of World War One so they gain a greater understanding of the ‘war to end all wars’.
Any school can download Fallen Fields for free from our website.
Commemorating the conflict
The project includes facts and figures about World War One as well as many suggestions for activities such as trips to war memorials and museums, online research to find old newsreel footage and photographs and interviews with family members to ask if they have stories passed down about the 1914-1918 conflict.
It encourages children to work together to create timelines, maps and newspaper articles; to plant poppies and to study war poems, paintings and songs. The project even provides a step-by-step guide to help the children organise their own Remembrance Day commemoration event.
Aimed at ten and eleven-year olds in upper key stage 2, the project will help teachers plan a wide range of cross-curricular learning opportunities.
Fallen Fields is also suitable for Year 7 pupils at secondary school.
Imaginative Learning Project
The Fallen Fields project follows the creative learning format of all Cornerstones imaginative learning projects, which means it is designed to help children think for themselves using the four cornerstones – engage, develop, innovate and express – while at the same time meeting all the learning requirements of the national curriculum.
Our free sample project also includes access to ready-made teaching and learning resources, including presentations, song lyrics and maps as well as images, poems and website links.
Schools already registered on the Cornerstones Hub can find Fallen Fields in the ‘Supporting Documents and Products’ section of The Hub homepage. Log in now to access the project.
