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.

 Our featured theme for May 2019 is Local History!

 

 

Local History. As May is Local and Community History Month, we thought that Local History would make a great featured theme for this month. Local history is an enjoyable topic for children to study as takes in a locale that may be familiar to them and it also lends itself to many great local school trips. We have 26 great local history themed websites on offer. The resources cover: local history studies in general, history in specific localities, how to begin a local history study, Local and Community History Month and more besides.

The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, ideas for hands-on activities, illustrations, images and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully support this very interesting local historical theme.

 

 

 

 

 

The Featured theme is updated monthly during the academic year. Watch out for our great Art and Design resources, coming in June 2019!
