The Sinking of the Titanic Virtual Classroom

The Sinking of the Titanic Virtual Classroom

Why were so many lives lost in the disaster? Exploring information and testimony submitted to the British government inquiry into the sinking of Titanic, students investigate why so many passengers and crew lost their lives in the early hours of 15 April 1912. Through close analysis of these documents, students link causes, reaching a conclusion about which factors were most significant. This workshop supports schools studying challenges to Britain and the wider world, 1901 to the present day. Book The Sinking of the Titanic now

From the Front Virtual Classroom

From the Front Virtual Classroom

How typical was Albert Edwin Rippington’s experience of war? ‘…if you ever meet a chap that says he wants to go back call him a liar’. These are words penned by Albert Edwin Rippington, an employee of the Audit Office for the Great Western Railway. Albert, along with many of his colleagues, had enlisted to fight in the First World War. He was wounded in action and wrote about his experiences from his hospital bed back in England. Albert was clearly deeply affected by his time in the trenches, but how typical was his experience? Exploring a range of letters written by soldiers who enlisted from the Great Western Railway to fight, students will investigate these men’s experiences of war; the conditions in the trenches and in reserve, and the impact that these experiences had on their morale and health of these men.

Fighting Conscription Virtual Classroom

Fighting Conscription Virtual Classroom

Why did men appeal against conscription? In January 1916 the British Government introduced compulsory military service for all single men of military age. Why did some men decide to apply for exemption from conscription? Students answer this question by critically examining the case papers of the Middlesex Appeals Tribunal, which, between 1916 and 1918, heard the appeals of men who previously applied to a local tribunal for exemption from military service. Through the individual stories held in these records students explore the impact of conscription on British society. This is a free 1 hour workshop with The National Archives Education Service which can be run via Virtual Classroom in your school or on site at the National Archives in Kew. Please use the link below to book this session. Connections to the curriculum: Edexcel Thematic Study Option 12: Warfare and British society, c.1250–present. Book Fighting Conscription now

Titanic Experience Day

Titanic Experience Day

Titanic Experience Day An opportunity for children to dress up and sail on the queen of the ocean. I organised this for my year 3/4 class when they had a good knowledge of the Titanic but still had some misconceptions/myths clouding their knowledge Eg all the women and/or first class survived (about 5 weeks in). Could be done as an end of unit or instead of a trip if it’s too far to travel to Southampton. It is a fun day which provides children with context and gives teachers good writing opportunities. The children LOVED it and were still talking about it with enthusiasm months later to an OFSTED inspector… Included: plans, prep list, paper resources, flipchart lesson starter, template latter to parents … I am the history lead for my federation. Email me any questions you may have. Enjoy!!
