Airfix is launching a new schools programme to help kids engage with the history of World War One.

Linked closely to the National Curriculum, the programme called Airfix ‘Guardians of History’ World War One offers a portfolio of history resources to Key Stage Two teachers.

Resources will include 15 detailed Historical World War One themed Airfix kits, an Airfix challenge model-making exercise, branded pupil wristbands as rewards as well as dowloadable activity sheets and targeted lesson plans.

Participating schools will also be offered the chance to welcome a visit from an expert Airfix ‘Guardian’ who will assist in bringing the resources to life in the classroom.

The new initiative is an extension of Hornby’s Airfix brand’s already successful schools programme.

“The 100th anniversary of World War One presents us with an ideal opportunity to extend our already existing programme of schools initiatives by devising a themed campaign to immerse teachers and children into the Airfix brand with resource packs,” said Hannah O’Toole, marketing and communications manager for Hornby.

“We wanted to re-engage with a new generation of children and their parents within a stimulating environment where the Airfix brand can be reviewed through themed classroom activities, allowing key historical themes to be brought to life through 3D learning.”
