Walter Tull: Sport, War and Challenging Adversity - Key Stage 2

Walter played football for Spurs and Northampton and the first black officer in World War 1. 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 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"
