The Sheldon Memorial Trust is offering a prize worth £1000 to a primary school in York and its environs to explore our prehistoric past.
Supporting the delivery of the ‘Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age’ component of Key Stage 2 History, this package of learning activities will encourage learners to think about the very beginnings of habitation and settlement in Yorkshire, and could include:
To be in with a chance of winning, tell us what top 3 things you and your class would like to learn about life in the prehistoric past. You can do this with letters, drawings or even a video: your class might enjoy role-playing some aspects of prehistoric life! The class with the most creative and persuasive approach will be the winner.
The deadline for submissions is 31st December 2018.
If you have any questions about how to take part, please contact Frances Bennett, Interpretation and Engagement Manager, via firstname.lastname@example.org.
We advise that AV submissions do not run to more than 5 minutes and that written submissions are no more than 1000 words in total. This may mean that a collaborative piece (e.g. a single letter or poster created by a whole class) might be more suitable for your class.
The Sheldon Memorial Trust has teamed up with York Archaeological Trust to present a unique opportunity for schools in York.
