Walter Tull: Sport, War and Challenging Adversity - Key Stage 3

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 as the Suffragettes during ‘Diversity’ or Black History weeks.

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