Synopsis

Remembrance Day History by Stewart Ross

Remembrance Day is a special day in November when we remember people who suffered and died in wars. This book shows how Remembrance Day began after World War I and what people do on this day. It explains why poppies are a symbol of remembrance & also looks at war memorials and how they help us to pay our respects to those who died fighting for their country. The best-selling Start-Up series has now been rewritten to emphasise the cross-curricular teaching potential of each title. The series now provides notes and activities, spread by spread, highlighting ways in which learning can be extended into various subject areas. The other key change to the original series is revamped end sections featuring extension learning details together with latest internet and web resource information.

About the Author

Stewart Ross

After several years teaching at a variety of institutions in Britain, the USA, the Middle East and Sri Lanka, Stewart Ross became a full-time writer eleven years ago. With over 175 published titles to his credit, in a remarkably short time he has become one of Britain’s most popular and versatile authors.

Current projects include a third adult novel, five volumes in Hodder's Survivors series of children's historical fiction, more volumes in their Stories From History for young children, several other historical stories and works of non-fiction, a Jubilee revue, and a musical with Paul Englishby (musical director of Captain Corelli's Mandolin'). A frequent lecturer, notably on the QE2, and occasional journalist and broadcaster, Stewart lives near Canterbury with his wife and four children. Each morning escapes domestic hubbub by commuting ten metres to work in a large hut in the garden.
