Online CPD module 1

These modules were originally created to support those teachers going on one of the nationally- funded battlefield tours as part of the First World War Centenary commemorations between 2014 and 2020. They have been amended to support any teacher planning on visiting the battlefields.

The Christmas Truce

What actually happened on the Western Front during Christmas 1914?

In December 1914, thousands of German and Allied soldiers around Ypres took part in spontaneous and informal truces – an extraordinary moment that still has powerful resonance today.

This resource sheet contains examples of some themes that you could pick up through an enquiry into what actually happened on the Western Front during Christmas 1914?

Towards peace - Powerpoint 2

In this stage of the enquiry students examine how the tone of those leading the armistice commemorations influenced international relations up to 1945, as well as the terms of the subsequent Treaty of Versailles. This resource is designed to be used in conjunction with a visit to the Alsace Lorraine Monument on the site of the Armistice at Compiegne.
