CfE Suggested WW1/ WW2 activities and related CfE outcomes by level


I am investigating different careers/occupations, ways of working, and learning and training paths. I am gaining experience that helps me recognise the relevance of my learning, skills and interests to my future life. HWB 2-20a
Looking into the working life of the soldiers when they were in training and on the battlefields.

I can create, capture and manipulate sounds, text and images to communicate experiences, ideas and information in creative and engaging ways. TCH 1-04b /TCH 2-04b
Capturing information from online resources and placing it in a word document. Saving pictures of soldiers for use on title pages and in related documents

When I engage with others, I can respond in ways appropriate to my role, show that I value others’ contributions and use these to build on thinking. LIT 2-02a
Working in pairs or larger groups researching a particular soldier

I am developing confidence when engaging with others within and beyond my place of learning. I can communicate in a clear, expressive way and I am learning to select and organise resources independently. LIT 2-10a
I can use primary and secondary sources selectively to research events in the past. SOC 2-01a
Using Research Books, online versions of books and selective online sources e.g. the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website

Researching the individual soldiers’ stories on the war memorial
I can investigate a Scottish historical theme to discover how past events or the actions of individuals or groups have shaped Scottish society. SOC 2-03a
e.g. Researching the History of the 6th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders and looking into the battles they fought during WW1
I can compare and contrast a society in the past with my own and contribute to a discussion of the similarities and differences.  SOC 2-04a
Reflecting on what it was like to be a soldier and how the family at home coped in their absence. Asking at home to see if there are any family stories about involvement in either of the major wars (WW1 and WW2)
I can discuss why people and events from a particular time in the past were important, placing them within a historical sequence. SOC 2-06a
Researching the origins of WW1 and the role of the different battalions in the war.
Inspired by a range of stimuli, I can express and communicate my ideas, thoughts and feelings through activities within art and design. EXA 0-05a / EXA 1-05a / EXA 2-05a
