Walter Tull: Sport, War and Challenging Adversity - Key Stage 1

Walter played football for Spurs and Northampton and the first black officer in World War I. The Key Stage 1 resource has History as its lead subject, supporting and developing work in literacy, drama, citizenship, geography, PSHE and art.

His story is appropriate for children and young people across KS1, KS2/3 and KS3 and we have produced packs aimed at each of these key stages. 
What have teachers said about the packs?
Primary teachers:

"Walter Tull’s story motivates boys and provides a hook for children to explore other people in their locality and beyond"

"Walter Tull’s story provides a hook for exploring other significant black people or social movements such as the Suffragettes during ‘Diversity’ or Black History weeks"

Secondary teachers: 
"Walter Tull’s Story provides a hook for investigating World War 1 and is part of a thread linking Slavery, Empire, War and Decolonisation"
