These educational resources can be used in the classroom, at home or at the exhibition. They inspire individual as well as group work and include suggestions for further fun, engaging activities. This resource pack contains: 

In Writing Home 1, pupils look closely at a letter written by an actual soldier on the front to his family at home. First, pupils answer some questions based on a close reading of the letter. Then, putting themselves in the soggy boots of the soldier, try and write his next letter home, staying cheery despite the uncomfortable conditions in the trenches.

In Writing Home 2, pupils complete the worksheet alone or in a group. Looking closely at real letters written by a soldier on the front to his family at Craiglockhart, pupils answer questions and then empathise with the soldier's situation to help him write a postcard home.
