Fallen Fields

Teach the First World War at Key Stage 2 with our FREE project, Fallen Fields.

On 11th November, people around the world will be reflecting on the lives that were irrevocably changed and those that were lost. Although the study of the ‘Great War’ is not a history topic specified in the KS2 national curriculum, many primary schools believe that it is important to teach its significance to children.

Our special history project, Fallen Fields, is designed to teach children key knowledge about the First World War and comes with a wealth of time-saving resources. Appropriate for children in Years 5 and 6, it provides a series of pre-planned lessons across a range of subjects. Fallen Fields is best taught over two to three weeks, culminating in a fundraising activity where the children plan to raise money for The Royal British Legion. However, some schools decide to adapt the project to teach across one to three days for a more immersive experience

This free sample project comes with a full set of bespoke and stunningly designed lesson resources to help bring the subject to life, including original illustrations and examples of first-hand evidence. Through these resources, children learn about the significant events, leaders, dates, and issues around the First World War, including the diversity of the people involved. We have also included a First World War knowledge organiser, which children can read before starting the project, and an end-of-project quiz.

    We are in a much better place with CM than with our old curriculum. We will be making it more bespoke in the second year.

    I have used Cornerstones from its first launch. The product has been refined over time as it is driven by feedback from schools and teachers delivering the content. The company is also responsive to a school's needs.

    Maestro is a real time saver, particularly for leadership teams and subject leaders. There is a wealth of information and resources which can be used and adapted by creative skills teachers. The way the curriculum is mapped is excellent and was commented on in a very recent Ofsted inspection.

    I have recommended and told many other schools and school staff about it. I would always though suggest that they need to ensure it is right for their school setting and the needs of their staff and pupils.

    It has been a revelation. Staff are finding their way through it and if we have any questions, the support from Cornerstones is amazing. We always get answers to our questions. It is now our one-stop-shop for curriculum with linked up thinking and approach through an intuitive and user-friendly system.
