LOCAL STUDY / PRIMARY / HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION

The importance of local history for developing a sense of place and identity is emphasised by the National Curriculum. The local landscape and buildings can often reveal a great deal about the use of land and the type of people who lived there in the past. Buildings and landscape can reveal how long a heritage the place has had. Monuments and local heritage or parish records can highlight individual local heroes or provide a window into the lives of ordinary local people in times gone by. How similar or different were their lives? Often, the local picture can also help to reveal the national or international picture. Find out more really useful local history information at this Historical Association site.

These resources are available to schools that are already members of the Historical Association. Primary Membership, at the time of writing was £35.50 pa - sample resources are provided on the website to help judge whether it may be worth taking up membership.

'The Titanic and Sea Travel!'

 

Iceberg straight ahead!!! On the 14th of April 1912, the famous passenger ship, thought to be unsinkable, the RMS Titanic, sank on her maiden voyage from the UK to America with great loss of life. The story of this tragic ship and its ill-fated sea voyage forms the centrepiece of this month’s featured theme

We explore:

  • How was the Titanic built?  
  •  Why she was thought to be unsinkable?
  • What happened on her fateful maiden voyage?
  •  How she sank?
  • What happened to the passengers and crew?
  • Were there any survivors and what were their stories?

 

We have 34 excellent themed resources that will provide answers to the above questions, look at other ships, sea travel and much more besides. The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully support this fascinating topic.

 

 

 

The Featured theme is updated monthly during the academic year. Watch out for our superb 'Food Chains and Habitats' resources, coming in September 2019!

June 2019

Art and Design. June's featured theme was the creative subject of art and design. In primary school, art and design can be fun, it can be decorative and it can also be used to convey a message, or tell a story. It can be created for exhibition, demonstration and illustration purposes, or it can simply be produced for personal enjoyment and as a vehicle for expressing the artist’s imagination and creativity. There can be little doubt that the subject has wide-ranging appeal and artistic creation is really enjoyed by many - children and adults alike!

We have 47 great art and design themed websites on offer; they include resources for both KS1 and KS2. The resources embrace the different artistic disciplines, elements, materials, designs, artists and much more besides. They comprise of a mixture of: art examples and ideas, art and design information and lessons, video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support this great theme.
