Free primary and secondary schools resources to use from home
Our schools week which would have taken place in June 2020 is now online and ready to use!
Working with Benjamin Franklin House and Wesley’s House and the Museum of Methodism – we are delivering downloadable online resources around the theme ‘changing the world’. All our of unique historical sites and histories are about making the world a better place and celebrating people that championed these changes. The resources are presented as three presentations (with audio/video), some with accompanying worksheets or experiments and all teacher/guardian guides to support learners, although the resources are designed so learners can work independently.
There are three sets of resources, learners can pick their favourite or do all three! Each resource will last 1.5-2 hours for learners to complete and will meet the needs of the English, History and Science curriculum for KS2 and KS3.
These resources from the Newington Green Meeting House project cover the history of this 300 year old religious building where people have always thought differently, together. Learners will meet their historical neighbours, meet the famous faces of the Meeting House like Mary Wollstonecraft (mother of feminism) and learn about campaigns today to make the world a fairer place.
For KS3 learners the resources go on further to introduce Anna Laetitia Barbauld, poet and educator, who attended the Meeting House and spent her life writing works to make the world a fairer place – like writing protest poems to support abolishing slavery. Through exploring her work, and contemporary versions and interpretations of her works from poet Dr. Simon Jenner, learners create their own protest poems about campaigns they feel strongly about today.
