This set of resources, produced in partnership with the National Literacy Trust and aimed primarily at students aged 11-14, is based around the film Private Peaceful - the 2012 screen adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's book of the same name. It provides an in-depth and collaborative way to commemorate World War One with your students.

From script analysis to investigating the science of chemical warfare and the geography of war torn landscapes, the resource spans six different themes. For each of these themes - which include curriculum links to History, English, Citizenship, Geography, R.E. and Science - you'll find teachers notes, discussion questions, recommended activities and worksheets. All of which are complemented and enhanced by PowerPoint presentations with embedded Private Peaceful film clips.

What our educators say

"The use of film has been extremely successful in engaging pupils with literacy, as the barrier of text is immediately removed. I have also seen that pupils have become more independent in their learning when using film."
