Teaching future generations about the convoys
A series of lesson plans for Key Stage 2&3 have been developed and can be viewed below.
The lesson plans follow the broad course of the war and focus on the personal contributions of the Royal Navy, the Merchant Navy, the Fleet Air Arm and the Women of the Royal Naval Services [Wrens].
The lesson plans fit in with the History National Curriculum, “A high quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupil’s curiosity to know more about the past.

The plans fit in with the specific topic of “challenges for Britain, Europe and the wider world 1901 to the present day.
