From the seventeenth century to the modern day, the National Army Museum tells the story of the British Army and the people who served in it.

Our free virtual workshops for primary schools cover topics from Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, Remembrance, the First World War and The Blitz.

Each workshop includes pre-filmed content, a live link up with the Museum’s learning team and a digital resource pack.

Poppies to Remember KS1 and KS2 virtual workshop

Why do we wear poppies? Each November, poppies are sold in schools, in shops and lots of different public spaces. This workshop gives learners the chance to explore why poppies are worn at this time of the year and how Remembrance symbols vary between different countries and faiths.

Investigate stories of Remembrance and the lives of men and women who served during the First World War.
