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.

Primary School Teaching Resources

 

The 123HUB is a FREE resource bank and teaching community for primary school teachers. It has been designed to assist teachers in finding good quality online resources. Our aim is to take the effort and guesswork out of finding the best online resources that are available for the primary school curriculum. All of the resources on the 123HUB have been hand picked by teachers.

 

Now over 2600 quality teaching resources available!

 

 Our fantastic new featured theme for June 2020 is 'Heroes and Villains'!

 

Our Featured Theme for June 2020 is the fascinating topic of ‘Heroes and Villains. We consider what makes a hero and what might make a villain. We look at the lives of many famous people in history – were they heroes, or were they villains? We also explore superheroes, Olympic athletes and other sporting people, real-life and legendary heroes and heroines and much more besides. All in all, we have 78 super themed websites on offer.

All of our featured themes are made up of a mixture of teaching and investigation resources. They comprise of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support our very engaging and wonderful topics.

 

 

 

 

 

The featured theme is normally updated monthly during the academic year.

Watch out for our great 'Recycling' resources coming in July 2020!

April and May 2020

In May, we explored the fascinating world of Railways. We have 40 excellent themed websites on offer, covering: the first engine to travel on a track in 1804, railway development and expansion over the years, including the Industrial Revolution, the Victorian era and the glorious age of steam, taking us right up to the high speed trains that currently thunder along our rail tracks.  We also explore how railways have changed the world of travel and transportation.

As with all of our super featured themes, Railways contains a mixture of teaching and investigation resources. The theme comprises of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support this engaging topic.

 

 

 

 

 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 school closures, we decided to also keep our ‘Learning and Living at Home’ theme from April on the homepage during the month of May. The popular theme has grown to 62 great resources and we hope that it will continue to prove useful to teachers, parents and children during these challenging times.

The theme contains the following resources:

  • Free Learning Resource Packs
  • PE and Mindfulness Resources
  • Art and Craft Activities
  • Cooking Activities and Recopies
  • Home Learning Advice and Tipsto
  • Free Stories and Applications
  • Non-Curricular Entertainment
  • Free Language Learning Resources
  • And Much More…

We plan to add to these resources during the crisis and if any teachers or parents out there can recommend any quality sites that we can add to the theme and share with others, please let us know at: hub@123ict.co.uk
