A wide and expanding section covers diverse themes, events and characters from history. Includes information on UK celebrations, personalities and events we remember. Featured areas are Guy Fawkes and November 5th, the Slave trade and St George's day.
November the 5th isn't the same without this story. Teach them the reason we have fireworks on bonfire night. The Historical story - a sequence of events for ks2. There are some images which ks1 teachers will find useful.
This lists activities and pictures which you can use in lessons. Our pick of the crop would be the downloadable cards with a sequence of events on - and the "chant" where you can hear children singing "Remember Remember.......
This fabulous story has been made by Woodlands Junior school. Well written and easy to digest for KS2.
This National Maritime Museum site is entitled Freedom. Although badged as Ks3. We would use SOME of the resources to support discussions with children in upper Ks2 about slavery. Includes a map of the triangular route and sections entitled; oppression and survival, resistance, abolition and impact. There is also a timeline. The photos of images are mainly primary resources and are of excellent quality.
Don't let the fact that this is a pdf put you off at all. There is so much to use here - simple introductions, useful worksheets and good quality images to provoke discussion. Full biographies on William Wilberforce, Olaudah Equiano and Elizabeth Heyrick. There is also The John Newton Story. Some of the content is about modern slave trade, this is a resource for the teacher to select from and the entire content of the pdf may not be suitable for children in Ks2.
As the title suggests. Perfect for a St George?s day assembly.
A pdf document with 4 England flags on each a4 page. Could come in quite useful.
Great for ks1. Pictures of the dragon and St George can be printed and coloured in.
There's all you could ever wish for on this fabulous Woodlands Junior school site. There are pictures of St George and the Dragon and from the story. Perfect for an assembly. Includes; The Legend of St. George and the Dragon, The Real Man, The Flag of England and the Union Flag, Images of St George, What is England Famous for? Symbols of England and St George's Day events in England.
You'll probably want to copy and paste this, with a bit of editing, it could form some good text for lower Ks2 too. No pictures though. Shame.
Beautiful and information-rich site made by a primary teacher in Edinburgh. Information divided into People, Places and Events.
