To compliment the ‘100 Years Ago: Salford at War’ exhibition, our sister site Salford Museum and Art Gallery produced a WW1 Learning Resources aimed at secondary schools to help further expand the themes in the exhibition. The resource is designed to be used either in the classroom, or on a self guided visit to the exhibition but will also provide a learning legacy once the exhibition finishes in November 2015.

Using this pack will help students look at the stories of Salford people caught up in World War One – including an ambulance driver, a nurse, a soldier and a conscientious objector; as well looking at the war memorials and how we remember the war in present day Salford.

The information in the pack is designed to also be used with groups and with families interested in exploring the themes of the exhibition.Want to know more about World War One?

Take a look at our Salford Remembers booklet for an overview of some Salford stories during WW1 or visit our Salford Remembers WW1 website dedicated to the World War One Centenary.

With thanks to The Booth Charities for funding the resource pack.
