Pupils will look at the childhood and football career of Walter Tull, what happened to him when he fought in World War I and why he was different from most people of his time. They will compare his experiences to issues and people still relevant today including the double Olympian gold medallist boxer, Nicola Adams. This unit plan includes opportunities for teachers to link this history unit with their English, science and PSHE lessons. It would be greatly enhanced with the purchase of the resource, ‘Walter Tull’s Scrap Book’, written by Michaela Morgan.
A picture based resource about Walter Tull's life (to compliment the Scheme of Work) will be added soon.
