On 11th November, countries worldwide mark Armistice Day to remember the sacrifices made by soldiers.
To help you sensitively explore themes of remembrance with your children, we have a story from renowned actor Jane Bower – but is there any truth to it?
To find out, your young learners will need to complete our Epic Challenge to win the end of the story, while hitting a Literacy objective at the same time! In this video, we ask them to make a poster to convince someone either to join the army or not.
Plus: teachers and educators should check the Epic Learning podcast at epictales.co.uk/story/herbert for tips on learning outcomes using this story – including numeracy, RE, and PE.
