To help support your planning and teaching of Stone, Bronze and Iron Age Britain, our experts have designed three INSET courses for teachers and subject coordinators of KS2 history for you to choose from.
The courses are designed to enable you to:

  • Enhance your subject knowledge in a practical and informative manner

  • Curriculum-linked activities and resources, which you can take back to the classroom.

Courses include:

  • Interactive talks and artefact handling by Archaeologist Keith Fitzpatrick Matthews
  • Primitive skills workshops with Luca Parrella Celtic Harmony Heritage Director

Since 1998, Celtic Harmony has been offering pupils the chance to experience life in Ancient Britain at our prehistory settlement and have worked with local archaeologists to ensure we offer authentic and exciting activities.

 “Excellent, amazing background to history and practical skills which we can use in school.”

World War 1 Christmas Truce Commemorations

The Northumbria and Newcastle Universities Martin Luther King Peace Committee have produced some teaching resources to help schools, churches and civic institutions mark the December 1914 Christmas truces.

The December 1914 Christmas Truces, when British, French and German soldiers stopped fighting to celebrate Christmas, exchange gifts, sing carols, and even play football, are one of the most extraordinary episodes in modern military history. They are worth teaching about not only because they are so remarkable and evocative, but because in recognising a common humanity that transcends even belligerent nations they can teach an important message that may otherwise be overlooked in the centennial commemorations.

Christmas Truces

The resource pack contains lesson plans, hand-outs, worksheets and PowerPoint slideshows for a range of subjects including history, English/literacy, geography, RE/PSE, art, PE and even cookery. It also contains complete outlines and materials for Christmas Truces-themed assemblies and school carol services. They are aimed primarily at Key Stage 2 and 3, but can be adapted for younger children and older students.

The resource pack is available to download below and further resources including powerpoints are available to download free from their website:
