Custom Books

Custom Books

Custom Books is a resource created for a project with children who were in KS2-KS3. The resource may be useful for local history studies and as a stimulus for children to create their own chap book about a topic of their choosing. The project was awarded National Lottery funding, through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and as part of our agreement we said we would create and share this resource. Context Children became researchers, finding out about the history of The Customs House and chap books. Chap Books were an early type of book made from a folded piece of paper. We were helped by The Word (National Centre for the Written Word) in South Shields and the National Libraries of Scotland. The young people used their research to create their own book, working with a heritage-arts educator, sharing their history of The Customs House with our community. Content The resource includes: Our research into chap books using The Word; National Centre for the Written Word local history collection in South Shields and information from The National Library of Scotland. Pages from our chap book about the history of The Customs House in South Shields and it’s impact on the town.

End of Term Tutor Time / PSHCE

End of Term Tutor Time / PSHCE

A fun and creative Citizenship / Tutor Time project lesson for students in the last week of term. Could be used for activities week in Humanities or just as a reward lesson the last time you see your class for the summer. Very easy to set up - you will just need a few balloons, string, sellotape, old clothes, felt tips and a any other boxes/construction materials you can find (just things that would usually be thrown in the recycling). The students work in small groups to research and recreate a famous political icon (info sheets and clip tasks included - all instructions on Powerpoint). The lesson can last as long as you want it to, and I gave prizes of sweets at the end for the best one - but that’s optional! My students really enjoyed it and we took pictures at the end for the school website. Hopefully yours will love it too. I’m going to be adding lots more free PSHCE lessons over the coming months. Follow me to see when they’re uploaded! :)
