Words of War is a series of six short animations following the life of Private Tommy McCall, a Northumberland Fusilier. Using actual letters and images from our archives, the films provide a moving account of Tommy's experiences during training, service in the front line, his return home and remembrance. Supported by activity worksheets, a series of whiteboard exercises and a bank of images and music, the videos promote an understanding of the role of the regiment during the First World War.
It is aimed at Key Stage 2/3 (7-14 years) and all the videos, resources, teacher notes, audio tracks and whiteboards are available to download as a 277MB zip file:
