A Wealth of Resources

The aim of ‘Poppyscotland Learning – Sowing the Poppy seed’ is to provide a comprehensive learning experience for nurseries, schools, further education institutions and other youth organisations. The material highlights the importance of remembrance, veterans and the poppy.

The materials focus on a central key question ‘Why is it important to remember?’ This is supplemented by four further big questions, designed to stimulate learning and teaching.

  • Why do conflicts arise, how do they develop and how are they resolved?
  • What is the significance of the poppy?
  • How do conflicts affect communities?
  • How can we support Poppyscotland?

We provide a wealth of engaging, downloadable, learning resources, including lesson plans, assemblies, films and images developed in conjunction with Education Scotland, Lady Haig’s Poppy Factory and Legion Scotland.

Each of the resources has been designed to stimulate a wealth of skills and abilities, all combining to bring to life the personal stories of veterans and importance of remembrance in a way young people can relate to and understand.

Our activities develop crucial skills, helping them think independently and form their own views around remembrance and the poppy.
