Materials for schools

Working in partnership with Leeds Museums and galleries, the project has produced an educational resource for primary school children to learn more about the Leeds Pals. Take a look here to see a video about the resources and download them. Leighton Hall Farm offers educational access to the area of the Leeds Pals training camp featured in this learning resource - see for more details

A First World War educational resource for AONB schools has also been developed, based on the findings of a schools workshop with three local primary schools from across the area. This resource offers a toolkit for local schools to find out more about their local First World War history, drawing on the research developed by our volunteers, including our service personnel database.

The project contributed to the Heritage Schools programme funded by the Department of Education and English Heritage.
