Stories from the Fields- Stories and classroom activities for KS2
This website is home to a free online resource, aimed at Key Stage 2 children (age 7-11 years old), that explores some of the changes that farmers in Cornwall have witnessed within living memory. The website includes a series of digital stories (2-3 minute long, narrative based films) made with farmers around Cornwall. These are accompanied by discussion points and activities to further engage children with Cornwall’s farming heritage.
This resource was created as part of ‘Tallys an Tir; Traditions & Stories of the Land.’
Landmark Travels- Travelling Suitcase Resources
A series of free educational resources that have been developed through the project ‘Landmark Travels- Our Past in a Suitcase.’ These innovative resources take the form of travelling suitcases, enabling children to explore and learn about some of the unique landmarks on their doorstep. Developed by a specialist team, these suitcases aim to inspire children and teachers through a range of activities, with a focus on Literacy, History and Art. Accompanying workshops are also available on request and can be adapted to best suit your school’s needs and budget.
The ‘Landmark Travels’ project was delivered in partnership by Storylines, the Institute of Cornish Studies and the Cornwall Heritage Trust, and has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cornwall Heritage Trust.
