Frequently Asked Questions


Your school can join in by asking the children to dress up in red, white and blue and bring in £1. Please go to the Register page and sign up. It is important that you do this, even if you have taken part in previous campaigns, as we regularly contact all registered schools to update them on events and send them our specially prepared videos, lesson plans and other publicity material.

 


Yes, we will be focus on the D-Day Landings and a number of the most prominent battles forming part of the Normandy invasion (codenamed Operation 'Overlord') launched on June 6, 1944 (the most celebrated day of the war). By the end of August 1944 all of northern France was liberated.

We will also feature The Battle of Arnhem  (codenamed 'Operation Market Garden') that took place in September 1944 and the second battle fought in April 1945 when the city was finally liberated by the British 49th (West Riding) Infantry Division fighting as part of the First Canadian Army.

This is, of course, up to you but what we would say is this is really focused on the children, and you can use it as a chance to explain about the different lives and experiences children have.


We will be producing several items including posters, activity packs and competitions. Once you have registered we will ensure that you are sent these publicity items when they are ready, you don't need to register a second time but the first time, even if you have supported our campaign in previous years, is important so we have your details on file.
Previous items that are still useful can be found if you go to the front page, click on Downloads at the top of the page then on the various years to see what is still available.


Once again we are working in partnership with Easycoin to ask schools to get their pupils to bring in any foreign currency their parents might have at home in drawers. We have produced a poster, which is part of the Welcome Pack, which you can use to advertise this initiative.

Click here to get a separate copy of this poster.

You might also want to consider speaking to any local companies that you work with to see if they would like to get involved with your day. Perhaps they might like to match-fund whatever funds your pupils raise, or give a donation to add to your collection. Companies have corporate responsibility objectives and this might be part of their own plans to help the community.
