The subject areas covered by the book are:
Myself and My Family
Ways of Life in the Past
Famous Men and Women
Past Events and Celebrations
To give some more specific examples, the section on Ways of Life in the Past has 30 detailed lesson plans covering topics such as clothes, diet, everyday objects, shops, jobs, transport and entertainment. Each topic is then further split into subheadings so the information is easy to locate and has an accessible layout.
The lesson plans are very well thought out, varied with different teaching methods suggested, and offer cross-curricular and ICT opportunities, although as the book was written in 1996, this is possibly the only part of the book where more detailed, dedicated and up-to-date resources and information could be found elsewhere.
A further section of 42 photocopiables offer worksheets and resource material, for the children to use in during the activities. The majority of them do not require much writing, such as matching labels and pitcures, putting pictures in order, completing pictures, but others include writing a postcard, a simple speech, a diary entry and a wanted poster. The drawings are lovely, however there are no primary sources such as photographs or copies of real documents, which could be a useful for the children and is a requirement of the National Curriculum.Read more ›
