I loved the Story Starters which provide richly stimulating pictures alongside opening sentences. I will use them to continue my children's learning in History into their English lessons, furnishing a satisfying cross-curricular link. I would recommend looking at these within the range of historical topics on offer. Thank you!
As an African born in America, I feel that some of these packs could be more inclusive with other cultures and races. Children of today need to really understand that this world consists of many cultures that have contributed greatly to society, and leaving out these facts can and will cause great harm (mentally, spiritually, and emotionally). As these children grow into adults, they will realize what they were taught was either false or half truths.
Thanks for your review GD. We completely agree that children should learn about the contributions that different groups of people have made to society and we try to include these in our packs. For example, in our recent Explorers Pack, there are references to explorers from different periods of history and from all around the world.
Our Early Human History Pack was created to address the requirements of the English National Curriculum, which states that "Pupils should be taught about changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age." As a result, the focus on this pack is on Britain and the changes here during that period.
I have used this pack this year and have found many of the activities really useful. The most useful have been the story starters. They helped my class write super narrative, but with a historical element. Thank you. I recommend this pack.
This is an excellent resource. Jam packed with a wide variety of resources, activities and display material. It is very appealing to children and adults and alike and has instantly helped to engage my Year 3's in this topic. I look forward to more History and Science topics to use in class.
This pack is fantastic. It contains beautiful images of early man through the ages and also pictures, images and drawings of cave paintings, tools used and ways the early man lived and evolved. It explains it in a very easy to understand way which my pupils loved.
They could not wait to find out what new animal the humans hunted or what tool they used.
The crosswords were greeted very enthusiastically. The booklet was easy to print out in sections to introduce to the children in manageable stages.
Looking forward to more History packs like this.
The Early Human History e-book is a fabulous resource. Our library is not very well stocked for this area of history so this has proved invaluable. It is written in a way to appeal to children and I even had some reluctant boy readers absorbed in the 'hunter/gather' pages.
