Dosvedanya McDonald's (1990)

The Soviet Union's first McDonald's opened in Moscow. Queues almost rivalled those to see Lenin's body in Red Square. This resource from menana takes you through the film Goodbye Lenin! in German.


National Heart Month

The British Heart Foundation's fundraising and educational month. Convince children of the need to keep their hearts healthy with a cut-out-and-keep resource from kritur.

Shipwreck - Captain to blame (1999)

The freighter New Carissa ran aground in Coos Bay, Oregon, resulting in a serious oil spill. Captain's error was blamed but no lives were lost. Use a resource from bee0304 to see what's in a shipwrecked sailor's pocket.


Bramley Apple Week

Do children still bring apples for their teachers? Why not encourage them to bring apple pie? Bramleys are grown only in Britain, which seems good enough reason to celebrate. Visit for a variety of recipes.
